LED Street Light Now Being Installed in Puerto Rico
“Our new RoadMaster™ LED street light represents a breakthrough in street light technology,” said Jim Haworth, chairman and chief executive officer. “The pairing of price and performance will save communities and cities around the world significant amounts of money. As a company, we don’t just speak of catalyzing a clean energy future, we lead — and light — the way.”
In an historic partnership with the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, approximately 4000 high-pressure sodium 100 and 150 watt street lights will be replaced with Lighting Science Group’s ultra-efficient and long-lasting RoadMaster™ street lights, resulting in a reduction in energy usage and maintenance costs of up to 50%.
Lighting Science Group’s world-class team of scientists and engineers re-conceptualized the design of traditional roadway applications, and as a result, the advanced componentry inside the RoadMaster™ makes the product more affordable and reliable than competing alternatives. The RoadMaster™joins Lighting Science Group’s full line of roadway products that have been installed around the world, including Mexico City, Salt Lake City, Sydney, and Washington D.C.
