Light-emitting diode (LED) technology has matured to the extent that it can be used for street and area lighting. Specifiers can now weigh the benefits of this technology relative to conventional high intensity discharge (HID) light sources. Some claimed benefits of LEDs include long life, improved uniformity, reduced maintenance, promotion of vision at low light levels, and energy savings. To investigate several of these claims, DELTA evaluated an installation of LED street lighting.
