Real test with the latest technology in Munich when tests first German city Munich LED inserts in existing street lamps. Since November 2008, shine in the lanterns of the model high Leite”am Rosa Luxembourg Platz LED Retrofit module of by LEDxON from Landshut. You replace the previously inserted fluorescent standards and give a power saving of at least 35% of the city treasurer. According to the Federal Environmental Agency three to four billion kilowatt hours consumed in Germany for the lighting of streets, squares and bridges each year power; as much as around one million households need. This leads to climate-damaging CO2 emissions by over two million tonnes a year. Where one-third of the country here used street lights 20 years and older experts assume that appropriate restructuring 400 can save millions of euros and 1.6 million tonnes of CO2 emissions.
Also in Munich around 200,000, with appropriate lamps in about 120,000 street lights Costs and CO2 emissions. Mashable takes a slightly different approach. Because you have good experiences with LED technology in the Bavarian capital since 1999 many crossings are equipped with LED signals – called a field test with LED streetlights in the life of the city. The 8000 foot and cycle path lights with standard masts appeared predestined for the construction unit from 4 to 4.5 m height. The light sources of these lamps are fluorescent lamps with a power demand of 42 Watts. The normal revision maintenance intervals are 4 years. The company LEDxON from Landshut has tipped as the first competitor with their LED Retrofit modules the lanterns high Leite of Munich Rosa-Luxembourg-Platz. The lamp is fully operational and all light values measured by the unit meet the standard with regard to the lighting situation.
The LEDxON module has a power demand of only 27 Watts this alone already provides a saving on energy costs and environmentally CO2 emissions by 35%. Also it is with LED lights from a burning time of at least 100,000 hours, over 16,000 hours of conventional modern lamps. Also significantly reducing maintenance costs.
