The Benefits of Induction Retrofit Street Lighting

The industrial lighting industry has been abuzz with news about induction lighting products for the past few years. As you probably know, industrial lighting, like those street lights that we all depend on to stay safe on the roads and highways, can cost quite a bit of money to stay lit. As private corporations and governmental industries have sought to find better ways to light up the roads, induction retrofit street lighting products have become the most talked about lighting solutions to hit the market in years.

What are the benefits of induction retrofit street lighting?

-    Lower maintenance costs. Induction lights last a lot longer than traditional HID lighting products. Many of the best induction lighting products have been rated as providing up to 100,000 hours of light before they need to be replaced. This is about 4 times the life of HID lights, so maintenance costs can be reduced by about 75% when induction retrofits are used instead of HID bulbs.
-    Lower energy usage. The typical induction street light bulb only uses about 35 to 40% of the energy that HID lights use, to provide comparable light levels. Any time companies can find something that reduces energy costs by up to 65%, that is something that everyone should sit up and take notice of.
-    Improved light. While this particular benefit has been debated by some, there's no doubt that induction lights actually produce more visible light than their HID counterparts. More light from less energy is a fantastic benefit to using induction retrofits for street lamps and highway lighting.

As you can see, the benefits of induction lighting for street lamps are pretty significant. You can be sure that you'll see more towns, cities and private organizations using induction lighting products in the years to come.

  1. They also last much longer, since they have nothing to burn. Some studies suggest that last five times longer than standard halogen bulbs, which is about the life of your bike! With motorcycle hid headlights will certainly not bother to change the normal bulbs.
