LED technology can be used for street lighting. We know that the use of LEDs is good for environmental protection because they consume little energy and lower maintenance costs. Compared with traditional street lights, LED street lights have many advantages. Public LED lighting is rapidly spreading and applied to road lighting. However, with the development of LED technology, the continuous improvement of technology, and the improvement of people’s awareness of energy-saving, environmental protection, and low carbon. The sustainable development of LED lighting has many benefits to our lives. Next, I will introduce the benefits of using public LED lighting. And a brief introduction to the cost of operating a solar street light system. Because understanding the cost of solar street lighting systems can help us understand solar street lights more fully.
Low energy consumption is one of the most significant advantages of public LED lighting. It reduces the energy consumption of street lights. Public LED lighting is a low-voltage working device. Therefore, under the same brightness, public LED lighting consumes the least power compared with ordinary street lights. This can significantly reduce energy consumption. And it can greatly save the cost of solar lighting street system.
On the contrary, with the development of technology and materials, public LED lighting will have higher luminous efficiency. After research, it is found that if all the lighting fixtures in Japan are replaced by public LED lighting. Then two large power plants can be reduced, which is very beneficial to environmental protection.
Finally, the working voltage of public LED lighting is generally only 2~3.6v. Its operating current is only 0.02~0.03a. In other words: it consumes no more than 0.1w of electricity. The power consumption of public LED lighting is more than 90% less than that of incandescent lamps with the same luminous efficiency. And more than 70% less than energy-saving lamps. Therefore, public LED lighting can be regarded as a natural energy-saving light source!
The initial investment cost of public LED lighting will be higher than that of ordinary street lights. However, the recycling rate of public LED lighting will be much greater than standard street lights. Because public LED, lighting is an energy-saving lamp. Compared with ordinary street lights, it has a longer working life. The brightness half-life of public LED lighting can usually reach 100,000 hours. If LEDs are used to replace traditional car lights, their lifespan will be much longer than that of the car body. Therefore, public LED lighting has the characteristic of not needing to be repaired and replaced for life.
Public LED lighting can be driven by low-voltage direct current. Generally, the power supply voltage is between 6 and 24V, so the safety performance is better. It is especially suitable for public places. Public LED lighting has lower light decay and a longer lifespan than traditional light sources. So even if we use it every night, it will not affect the life of the LED light source. Outdoor LED lighting has a long service life and hardly needs maintenance during use. Taken together, the average cost of public LED lighting is much smaller than that of ordinary street lights.
Therefore, under the appropriate current and voltage, the service life of public LED lighting can reach 100,000 hours. That is to say, theoretically, the product life can take more than 10 years. Compared with other types of lamps, it has a longer service life. Compared with incandescent lamps, fluorescent lamps, and led lights, the purchase price is higher. However, the energy consumption of LED lighting is deficient. Therefore, it can save many electricity bills in the long-term and the investment in replacing lights. Thus, the cost of using LED lighting is lower
Public LED lighting is used as a light-emitting device. It can also control the brightness through changes in current. Public LED lighting can also achieve color change and adjustment through the configuration of different wavelength LEDs. Therefore, a light source or display screen composed of LEDs can quickly meet the needs of various applications through electronic control. In addition, in principle, public LED lighting is not restricted by external conditions and is highly malleable. Can extend arbitrarily to achieve building block assembly. Now large-screen color displays also use LEDs. Compared with traditional lighting in public LED lighting, the light emitted by LED lighting is directional. The light can cast from the LED directly to the illuminated surface. Therefore, the utilization rate of public LED lighting is much higher than that of traditional light sources.
Public LED lighting adopts methods such as changing electric current, chemical modification, and monochromatic light mixing. It can realize the luminescence and discoloration of various colors in the visible light band. In this way, white LEDs can also be made into light sources of different color temperatures. Public LED lighting has apparent advantages in indoor decorative lighting and landscape lighting. Because public LED lighting uses a DC power supply, the light is stable and does not flicker.
Public LED lighting is small in size, and each unit LED chip is 0.5-1m square or round, so it is more suitable for preparing devices with complex modeling processes. For example, in the manufacture of soft, bendable lamp tubes, lamp strips, and special-shaped lights, currently, only LEDs are suitable.
Safe low voltage
At the same time, public LED lighting is a green light source. It is DC-driven and has no flicker. Therefore, crowd LED lighting has no infrared and ultraviolet components and no radiation pollution. And it has high color rendering and luminous solid directivity. More importantly, when the color temperature changes, public LED lighting will not produce visual errors. It also generates heat from a cold light source, so the heat is low to be touched safely. These are beyond the reach of incandescent and fluorescent lamps. It can not only provide a comfortable light space but also satisfies people’s physiological health needs. It is healthy and environmentally friendly lighting.
Public LED lighting uses a low-voltage DC power supply. And the power supply voltage is between 6~24v, which varies with different products. In short, it uses a DC power supply that is safer than a high voltage power supply. Therefore, LED lighting is particularly suitable for homes and public places.
In the past, the street lights on the street had a single color. And can not adjust the brightness and tone of the morning at will. If we want to achieve colored light, one is to paint or cover colored films on the lamp’s surface. The second is to fill the lamp with inert gas to emit light. Therefore, the richness of colors is limited. LED lighting is digitally controlled, and the light-emitting chip currently emits a variety of colors. Among them are red, green, and blue ternary colors. With these ternary colors, through system control, the colorfulness of the world can be restored. Therefore, switching to public LED lighting can change the color of street lights at will and better power the intensity of the light source, and reduce light pollution.
Less environmental pollution
The protective effect of public LED lighting on the environment is mainly manifested in three aspects:
First, there is no harm from metallic mercury. Public LED lighting does not use high-hazard mercury like fluorescent lamps. Therefore, there will be no leakage of mercury ions, phosphors, and other public hazards during the manufacturing process of the bulb or after it is broken.
Second, the epoxy resin used to make public LED lighting is an organic polymer compound. After curing, it has good physical and chemical properties. And it has high bonding strength to chips and metals, rigid and flexible. And it is stable to saline-alkali and most solvents, and it is not easy to damage. Even if the LED lighting is damaged or aging, it can be recycled and reused without causing pollution to the environment.
Third, the light generated by the particle layout of LED lighting and display screens is generally scattered, and light pollution is rarely generated.
Light color is the essential element of visual aesthetics and an essential means to beautify the outdoor environment. The choice of lighting directly affects the artistic effect of the lighting. Led lighting shows unparalleled advantages in the art of light color display lamps. At present, color LED products have covered the entire visible spectrum and have good monochromaticity and high color purity. The combination of red, green, and yellow makes the choice of color and grayscale more flexible. Lamps are luminous sculptures. The material form of lamps constructed from materials, structure, shape, and texture is also a necessary means of displaying art.
Lighting technology enables the room lamps to combine science and artistry better organically. It is breaking the limitations of traditional lights. It goes beyond the inherent concept of the so-called lamp shape. The design of LED lamps uses a new perspective to recognize, understand and express the theme of light in terms of visual perception and creative artistic expression of form.
In summary, LEDs’ energy-saving and environmental protection characteristics will become the prominent leaders of lighting in the future. Whether in terms of environmental protection or the benefits of enterprises, LEDs are a potential market, which is pretty significant. It is just that LEDs are currently functioning. The above cost is very high, and the price is much higher than ordinary light bulbs. Still, in the long-term sense, the long life of LED replacement and energy-saving, these superior characteristics will bring us excellent benefits.
