LED street lighting uses 50% less energy than high-pressure sodium alternatives

Cree Inc. announces a significant innovation in street lighting with the introduction of the XSP Series LED Street Light, what the company says is the most affordable and efficient Cree LED street light designed to speed payback to municipalities. Using nearly 50% less energy and designed to last over three times longer than traditional high-pressure sodium street lighting, the XSP Series can double the lumens per dollar compared to previous generations of Cree LED street lights, and is a suitable choice for cities and municipalities aiming to save money and resources.

Advanced engineering techniques improve the optical efficiency by 15% compared to previous generations of LED street lights and reduce the number of LEDs used by more than half without sacrificing application performance; fewer LEDs enable lower luminaire costs and faster payback for customers. NanoOptic Precision Delivery Grid optic technology efficiently delivers light to the street, making communities appear cleaner and safer.

Based on Cree's LED technology, the new XSP Series was designed from the ground up to deliver system efficiency of up to 100 lumens per watt and is designed to provide long L70 lifetime of more than 100,000 hours. The new street light delivers municipalities up to twice the lumens per dollar compared to previous generations, and can pay for itself the first time a city avoids sending a crew and truck to replace a bulb.
