Small Wind Energy Goes Urban In Italy, Korea, Brazil And Texas

Publié le par brightshine

Streetlights usually operate at electricity rates like the ones we pay in our private homes. About one-third of a municipality’s electrical costs are for street lighting. So having that energy provided by some form of renewable energy, means that every cent is saved and for municipalities, whose budgets are being squeezed, that’s something serious to consider.

Take Trondheim, Germany for example. The city has 21,500 street lights (1,100 on highways, 2,800 on county roads, 16,600 urban roads, 300 in parks,LEDs are used as indicator LED bulb in many devices and are increasingly used for other lighting. 700 on private roads). Their 2006 lighting budget to run and maintain, including the cost of the energy for those 21,500 lights was 1,881.250 m euros a year.Choose your led lighting by style, finish or designs in our on-line store.

It’s possible to reduce today’s energy consumption for street and road lighting by as much as 60% with new technologies – LED, smart lighting, distributed wind energy and even lights out programs. By example, the city of San Jose, California was able to trim down their $4 million annual electric bill for streetlights just by converting their street lights to LEDs. The city of Calgary replaced all of their street lighting with efficient lights which ended up saving the city about $2 million a year. The City of Oslo in Norway, installed intelligent street lighting which led to an energy savings of 70%.

Energy politics aside, the buzz around wind energy is mostly around reducing dependency on fossil fuels or getting off the grid. But sometimes those big leaps don’t start that big, they start at a local level – either from a personal desire to make a change in your own electric bill or a city choosing to take a stand and install a hybrid city lighting system.

J.W. Speaker unveiled the latest addition to its line of LED headlamps. Dubbed the 8700 Evolution, this 7-inch round LED headlamp suits an even wider range of vehicles than the company's Model 8700.

The 8700 Evolution's optics enable it to produce a beam pattern that exceeds both Department of Transportation and ECE requirements. It combines a full array of LEDs with high-tech optics to maximize the amount of useful light (effective Lumens) emitted. The optical engineers at J.W. Speaker have designed the beam pattern to minimize glare for oncoming traffic, while at the same time placing an even spread of light where drivers need it the most.

"The 8700 Evolution's new, more compact form factor is a product of customer feedback,Here you will learn about modern lighting as well as all of the big flashlight, flashlight rings, 1000 lumens flashlight." says Ryan Mayrand, product marketing. "Our Jeep customers were finding that our original 7-inch round headlamp required some modifications to the inside of the bucket in order to get a good fit, so we've designed the housing on the 8700 Evolution to be a direct drop-in replacement - no modifications necessary."
