There are many places that benefit from reliable, safe lighting- two of which being roadways and parking lots. For parking lot safety, and to make driving as safe as possible, lights need to be bright and long lasting. Current technology has been illuminating our roadways and parking lots admirably until now. With current Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology, the use of LED lighting would be a better option both financially, and environmentally.
Presently, roadway and parking lot lights are predominantly conventional lighting technologies such as metal halide or high-pressure sodium (HPS) lamps. While these technologies have done their job over the years, LED technology now presents a much more efficient and sustainable option. Because LED lighting has been made so accessible, it is a financially responsible solution; as streetlights will need less maintenance than metal halide or HPS lamps. Since LED lighting is so efficient, time between replacement lights will be much greater than non-LED options. Low installation, maintenance and control costs make LED lighting for roadways and parking lots, a financially sustainable solution.
It is important that sustainability be considered when making infrastructure decisions that will carry into the future. Since LED roadway and parking lot lighting options are up to 50% more energy efficient than non-LED alternatives, they are a much more sustainable option. LED lighting also does not contain the harmful chemicals and materials, such as lead or mercury, that the aging non-LED options may- this contributes to making the disposal of LEDs more environmentally conscious and sustainable.
When it comes to making an ecologically friendly lighting decision for roadways and parking lots that is equally budget-friendly, the best choice is LED. Highly efficient, low-cost, and easily maintained, LED lighting is the way of a better, well-illuminated future!
