LED Street Light Conversions and Installations


More and more municipalities are changing their street lighting to LED versions to reduce costs through energy and maintenance cost-savings. As a lighting solutions company we are pioneers in providing innovative methods including LED conversions and installations of street lighting.

The majority of city light conversions to smart LED lights are achieved by replacing either low pressure or high pressure sodium vapor lights, or metal halide lamps with white light emitting diode (LED) lights.

The benefits are significant:

  • Energy and maintenance cost savings
  • Extended lifecycle
  • Improved lighting quality
  • Reduction in carbon emissions
  • High-perceived security

Beyond the energy savings provided, installations of LED street lighting and controls offer associated reduction of tax burdens to citizens and commercial businesses. Call Green Power Lighting Solutions to discuss a maintenance cost and energy savings conversion.

We can also work with owners and operators of street lighting to determine if rebates and incentives for upgrading existing lights with energy-efficient LED street light fixtures are available.

Why LED Street Lights are Cost Effective and Energy Efficient


Street lighting can account for up to 40 percent of the electric utility bill for towns, cities and municipalities. According to case studies, installations of LED street lighting can lower energy usage and related costs up to as much as 65 percent, or even greater when incorporating advanced lighting controls.

An investment in LED conversions of street lights provides additional benefits, such as but not limited to:

  • Maintenance savings – as much as $50 annually per LED street light fixture
  • Lower carbon emissions
  • Reduced light pollution with improved optical control and less directed light into the sky
  • Brighter and improved visibility over HPS lights
  • Lower vandalism - greater durability of components over high pressure sodium lights
  • Reportedly lower crime rates and greater perceived security

Call us to discuss the most important considerations for achieving the highest cost savings and greatest energy efficiency when choosing street lighting for new or retrofit installations.

LED Street Light Fixtures and Bulbs Can Help you Save Money


While it is true that LED street light fixtures and bulbs may carry a higher upfront investment cost than conventional street lighting, the lifespan of nearly three times longer than HPS lights, and nearly five times longer than metal halide lights coupled with lower maintenance costs for exchanging bulbs make LEDs a wise choice.

These are a few points that should be taken into consideration when making a decision about energy efficient and cost effective lighting installations:

  • The efficiency of the light source
  • Lamp life
  • Distribution of the light
  • Use of lighting controls

Municipalities and street light owners and operators are choosing LED lighting to save money and to take advantage of the intelligent software technology that is embedded within the LED lights that will help make their streets safer.
