5 Reasons Why LED Is Better Than Traditional Lighting
1. More Energy Efficient
LED lighting provides the same or better illumination as traditional street lighting while using 25%-50% less energy.
LEDs are more durable and longer lasting than traditional lighting, with an illumination life of 25,000-50,000 hours or more.
3. Greater Control
LED lights can be adjusted to avoid dark spots and shadows, unlike traditional metal halide or high-pressure sodium street lights. That’s important for safety and security. Dimming capabilities deliver just the right amount of illumination at any given time - much harder to do with traditional lighting.
4. Better Clarity
LEDs have a higher color rendering index (CRI) than traditional lighting, closer to natural sunlight. That makes it easier for drivers, bicyclists or pedestrians to see small details, like slight changes in road or sidewalk surfaces.
5. Kinder to the Planet
LEDs create fewer carbon emissions and less light pollution (light directed into night skies).
