Abstract

Although conventional construction lighting often consists of strings of incandescent lamps in a simple cage, several alternative lighting technologies are now available that save energy and are acceptable to construction site workers. In this publication, the LRC evaluates conventional construction lighting and three alternative technologies: screw-base compact fluorescent lamps, screw-base LED lamps, and a low voltage LED system. This study compares worker acceptance, installation and maintenance, and energy performance of the four lighting technologies.
