LED street lighting
- COURSE OUTLINE
- SPEAKER BIO(S)
As a result of this course you will be able to:
- Define the purpose and objectives of street lighting.
- List standards to be used in street lighting design.
- Discuss LED street lighting design considerations and quality products.
- Describe LED street lighting economics case studies.
Who should attend?
City planners; municipal engineers; public works directors and superintendents; lighting designers, manufacturers and suppliers; architects; electric utility engineers; and anyone with interest or involvement in the design, operation or maintenance of street lighting.
There are many benefits to LED street lighting including improved nighttime visibility and safety, and energy and maintenance cost-savings. However, if you don’t take time upfront to develop a comprehensive plan before embarking on an LED street lighting conversion, these benefits could fall short. Don’t make the mistakes others in your shoes have. Join us in May. We’ll outline the questions you should be asking during the design phase, review performance standards and discuss the economics behind a conversion. Product selection guidelines, design assistance tools and case studies will be shared.
