Municipality Slovenske Konjice replaces obsolete outdoor lighting with Grah LED luminaires
Municipality Slovenske Konjice, Slovenia, has replaced a large part of old and inefficient public lighting in cooperation with the leading Slovenian manufacturer of street, interior and industrial LED lighting, company Grah Lighting. Since 2010, when in the municipality local authorities started to perform an action plan for replacement of public lighting, they have been successfully implementing different measures for reduction of energy consumption. At the same time, they are reducing light pollution and improving light-technical elements in traffic and other public areas.
High costs of electricity and maintenance of public lighting encourage municipalities to replace incandescent, technologically outdated luminaires with new, environmentally-friendly LED technology. Worth mentioning is street Toneta Melive and Liptovska cesta, where wasteful mercury lamps have been replaced with high efficient luminaires Grah® LED Lighting.
In both cases, savings exceeded the expected values. Old, wasteful 900 watt lamps on street Liptovska cesta were replaced with 122 watt LED luminaires, produced by Grah Lighting. On street Toneta Melive they installed additional control system beside replacement of 550 watt lamps with 35 watt LED luminaires. The system controls the operation of the lamps. Using the control system costs of electricity consumption have lowered by approximately 20 percent. Only on these two streets, the electricity consumption fell by almost 90 percent compared to the previous condition.
Regulated and efficient public lighting does not only mean lower power consumption, but also lower maintenance costs, regulation of public lighting in accordance with the latest EU regulations and standards, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions vandalism and light pollution and better road safety, as well as improvement of the citizens’ life quality.
