LED lighting specialist Cree has unveiled a complete portfolio of LED street lights that it hopes will revolutionize the sustainability of street lights.
Earlier this year, Cree introduced the Cree RSW LED Street Luminaire, a new street light that would provide energy savings through LED technology while still producing the warm yellow light that is so favored in lighting. Cree has worked hard to modify its LED technology, resulting in its proprietary WaveMax technology which provides “warm, even light with market-leading colour quality and efficacy.”
This week, Cree announced a full range of its RSW LED Street Luminaires, introducing three new models that it says “deliver comfortable, uniform and dark-sky friendly LED lighting to roadway applications.” The new street lights introduced are part of Cree’s wider RSW Series, “the first generation of LED streetlights to deliver LED energy savings and reliability in preferred color temperatures.”
“Cree is committed to providing better light experiences through better LED technology, and the RSW Series is poised to become our premiere intelligent street light solution,” said David Elien, Cree senior vice president of lighting. “Cree’s RSW Series ensures customers now have the opportunity to utilize warmer color temperatures for their street lighting needs without sacrificing LED performance and energy savings.”
Introducing energy saving LED technology into more roadway situations has been a growing trend throughout the world, and Cree has been at the forefront of this movement. Lighting efficiency as a whole has been widely heralded as one of the easiest ways for the average consumer to begin to make sustainable decisions at home, and this has naturally extended to local council decisions about street lighting. “The new RSW Series luminaires deliver superior efficacy of up to 115 LPW at color temperatures of 3000K or 4000K and a Color Rendering Index (CRI) of 80,” Cree said in their press release, adding that, “The result is enhanced visual comfort, reduced glare and higher quality street lighting for roadways using less energy.”
