Lighting Science Group launches ultra-efficient LED RoadMaster street light
In the global shift towards sustainable LED lighting solutions, Lighting Science Group has announced the launch of its high-performance and feature-rich RoadMaster street light. Currently being installed throughout Puerto Rico, the company's new street light reduces energy costs during its extended operating life, helping governments and communities avoid soaring energy and maintenance costs associated with traditional high-pressure sodium (HPS) street lights. The RoadMaster pays for itself by avoiding just one HPS lamp replacement, let alone the 4-6 traditional street light lamp changes it is expected to avoid over its rated life.
In an historic partnership with the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, approximately 4000 HPS 100- and 150-watt street lights will be replaced with RoadMaster street lights, resulting in a reduction in energy use and maintenance costs of up to 50 percent. The RoadMaster joins Lighting Science Group's full line of roadway products that have been installed around the world, including in Mexico City, Salt Lake City, Sydney, and Washington D.C.
Lighting Science Group Corporation designs, develops, manufactures, and markets LED lighting solutions that are environmentally friendlier and more energy efficient than traditional lighting products. Lighting Science Group offers retrofit LED lamps in form factors that match the form factor of traditional lamps or bulbs and LED luminaires for a range of applications including public and private infrastructure for both indoor and outdoor applications. Lighting Science Group's Advanced Projects Group business unit designs, develops, and manufactures custom LED lighting solutions for architectural and artistic projects. Lighting Science Group is headquartered in Satellite Beach, Florida; the Company's European operations are based in Goes, The Netherlands; and, the Company has a sales office in Sydney, Australia.
