LED streetlights help Toronto become brighter and greener
An installation of 16 LED streetlights in Toronto's Exhibition Place demonstrates reduced energy usage and improved light quality.
The LED luminaires were manufactured by Leotek Electronics, and were supplied by electromega, a Canadian distributor. The initial investment needed to cover the cost (approximately $1200 per luminaire) and installation of the new LED streetlights is expected to be recouped from electricity savings as well as reduced replacement and maintenance requirements.
A total of 12 LED streetlights have been installed at Exhibition Place on unique, bow-style street light poles surrounding the perimeter of the Automotive Building. An additional 4 LED streetlights are positioned in the parking lot south of the Direct Energy Centre.
