Save Energy: Whatever You Can, Whenever You Can

Pole lights are all around us, be it a park, a street, a busy road or a simple walkway, pole lights illuminate our path at every step and every corner.  

Being everywhere, pole lights also consume a lot of electricity. In such a scenario we obviously cannot reduce the number of pole lights to save energy, we will have to think of a new approach towards lighting and use better and efficient technology to save energy. This is where LED pole lights come into the picture. 

Harnessing the power of LED technology, pole lights can become amazingly energy-efficient slashing your energy bills by up to a whopping 75%. There are a number of ways in which LED lights save energy some of which are discussed below

How LED pole lights save energy

  • By being efficient: LED lights convert 95% of the electricity consumed into light. Thus only a mere 5% of the electricity is wasted as heat. This makes the light highly efficient. This is the reason why a 300-watt Shoebox light can replace a 1000-watt metal halide fixture. 

  • This efficiency also brings good news for the planet as because of it less electricity is demanded from the grid thus reducing the carbon footprint of the planet. 

  • By using a dusk to dawn sensor: LED yard lights have a photocell, also known as a dusk to dawn sensor which enables the light to automatically operate. 

  • A photocell is basically a resistor that triggers the light in absence of light and cuts off the circuit in the presence of light. Thus the light turns on automatically after sunset and automatically turns off at sunrise. Therefore the name ‘dusk to dawn’ sensor.

  • By having a long life and low maintenance: LED pole lights are tested to run for 50,000 hours minimum, thus giving you a sense of relief for almost half a decade. These lights also do not require much maintenance as they are quite rugged and are built to last.

  • Thus LED pole lights help you have energy in a lot of ways, and therefore are good for the planet since less energy consumed = less energy produces = less CO2 released into the atmosphere.
