New Brunswick - Replace incandescent flashing warning lights
Project Identifier
Project Description
The Department of Transportation will replace 386 incandescent flashing warning light units (suspended lights at intersections, flashing lights on roadside signs, median lights, navigation beacons, etc.) with energy-efficient light-emitting diode units, or LEDs, throughout New Brunswick. When completed, it had been initially estimated that the project would result in annual savings of 170,000 kilowatts. Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are solid-state devices that convert electric energy directly into light of a single color. Because they employ "cold" light generation technology, in which most of the energy is delivered in the visible spectrum, LEDs don't waste energy in the form of non-light producing heat. In comparison, most of the energy in an incandescent lamp is in the infrared (or non-visible) portion of the spectrum. As a result, both fluorescent and HID lamps produce a great deal of heat.
