The desire to create “bright cities” is the application of modern adjustable main and street lighting equipment. Saving cities and towns, if LED outdoor equipment is used – up to 70% in comparison with the standard approach in outdoor lighting.
In the development of human settlements infrastructures, always the priority areas are the construction of modern roads and their lighting.
Outdoor lighting of cities consumes a lot of electricity, so you need to consider outdoor lighting fixtures with energy-saving light sources. On replacement of standard lamps (gas discharge and incandescent lamps) came LED lamps for outdoor lighting.
Light has long been a powerful tool for creating a “quality” infrastructure, both in terms of convenience, and the atmosphere for residents, attractiveness for visitors.
