1.Tool-less access for installation and maintenance

Tool-less access allows for easy installation and maintenance processes. Clips on the bottom of the fixture allows access to drivers and other vital components. Our Cap Led Street Light Series,all with this advantage.

2.Replace 70W to 1000W Metal Halide and HPS street light

LED Street Lights produce from 3600 lumens to 38,760 lumens. Most inner-city street lights are low wattage HPS bulbs. We have low cost, high-quality street light options, backed with either a 5 year or 10 year warranty.
We can produce a free photometric evaluation of your outdoor space to show you how well our LED Street lights work, what model is appropriate and what optic provides the best results for you outdoor space.

High Intensity Discharge Lamp to LED Conversion

Traditional Street Lamp LED - Lumens (100% directional)
70 Watt HPS / Metal Halide 2,000 lumens
100 Watt HPS / Metal Halide 3,000 lumens
150 Watt HPS / Metal Halide 5,000 lumens
250 Watt HPS / Metal Halide 10,000-12,000 lumens
400 Watt HPS / Metal Halide 15,000-25,000 lumens
1000 Watt HPS / Metal Halide 40,000-55,000 lumens

3.Many Optics Options for Led Street Lights Beam Angle

Led street lights are directional lights. Their light's focussed and with optics lights up the intended location. They have diodes with individual optics and discharge light evenly across surfaces. Optics control the illumination pattern by delivering their designed beam pattern.
Typical road-way distribution patterns include many Types beam angle options. 80°*155° and 70°*155° are the most common. Why one works best for you? Let us do a free photometric with one of our many cobra head options.

4.Photocell sensor and Dimmable control,smart networks

Another great thing about LED street lights is they can dim down. This means you can turn off or dim each fixture in the absence of motion. This does not affect the life of the led street light, other than it will extend it. And a dimmed light uses less electricity, saving you even more on your lighting bill.
Think about this. Converting Metal Halide to LED, you might switch from 400 Watts to 120W. At night, if the light dims to 10%, that means the LED is now using 12W. That's a reduction of 388 Watts. (actually the HID lamp consumes 455W with the ballast draw, so you're saving 443W per fixture. That's huge!)

Our LED Street Light work with both photocell sensor and dimmable controls and smart networks.

5. 4000K and 5000K Color Temperatures

We offer Led Street Light color temperature options in both 4000K and 5000K. 5000K is a perfect replacement for Metal Halide. 4000K is also an option for those states requiring a slightly warmer light. Other color temperatures available upon request.
Both offer a significant improvement over high pressure sodium lights, rated at 2200K. LED street lights with a CCT of 3000K - 4000K (or a little less) are the best for street lighting in residential areas. The amount of blue light they emit is small.

6.High CRI with 70+,80+

One of the specifications you need to pay attention to is CRI (color rendering index). This is a measurement of the quality of light that the fixture is producing. It is a scale between 0 and 100. Sunlight is 100. A general rule is that you need less quantity of light if you have better quality. LED has high CRI making the quality better than most traditional light sources.

7. L70 Light Maintenance - up to 50,000 hours

Lumen maintenance relates to the lifespan of a light source. LED lights do not burn out like traditional lights. They maintain initial lumens longer. What happens is the light intensity fades gradually, but this usually takes years.
A 70% deterioration in light output is the point at which the human eye notices a decline in the intensity. But, the human eye is only affected when the light intensity of a light source reaches a level of 30%.

Used 12 hours a night, our Led Shoebox Street Light will provide bright, maintenance free lighting for years.

8.Efficacy (Lumens Per Watt)

Luminous efficacy is the true measure of a bulb’s efficiency. It indicates the lumens produced for every watt of electricity consumed. LEDs are more efficient than traditional bulbs with a higher luminous efficacy. High quality LEDs have awesome efficacy ratings. The standard luminous efficacy is upwards of 130 lumens per watt.
To calculate luminous efficacy, divide the number of lumens the lamp generates by the watts of electricity it consumes. LED light fixtures with a higher luminous efficacy are more efficient than those with a lower luminous efficacy.

9.Energy savings and maintenance savings - up to 80%

Led street lights offer high-quality light and use fewer watts than traditional HID lighting. What this means is that you will have more intense light but your power bill will decrease. Most of the traditional HID street lights use between 250 and 1000 watts. That does not include the additional 15% energy used for ballast draw.
If we compare this to Led street light, which consume 40 to 300 watts – there is a 40% to 60% reduction in energy. Greater savings when lighting controls are added.

Maintenance costs drops to near zero. Most street lights require a lift to replace or maintain. These jobs are not cheap. Installing a LED fixture that can last 10+ years mean huge maintenance savings.

10.Paybacks can be relatively short with LED Street-Lights

But it's dependent on the "1+1+1 rule"
LED payback = Hours of Use + Reduced Use of Electricity + Rebates

Rebates may be the least important of the three. High hours of use and high cost of electricity will dwarf the benefits of a rebate.

Everyone likes a rebate. We have created many proposals where payback was under 1 year even without rebates. Contact us and we can help walk you through the math.

11.Reduced Light Pollution

Traditional street lights may illuminate streets and sidewalks at night, however, they are notorious for light pollution. Light pollution is misdirected and excessive outdoor lighting. As countries and cities become more developed, the constant demand for street lighting increases the threat of light pollution.
Light pollution occurs in different ways including light trespass (light spill), sky glow, glare, and light clutter. It affects the environment as carbon dioxide is released into the atmosphere. The International Dark-Sky Association states that each year, about 12 million tons of carbon dioxide are released by invasive night time lighting. The association also estimates that 30% of all street light is wasted.

Light pollution also affects the lifestyle of mammals, birds, amphibians, and insects by causing disorientation and affecting their migration, sleeping, mating, and feeding cycles. LED technology has addressed the light pollution problem by developing light fixtures that focus light only where it is required.
