State of Outdoor Lighting - DOE

The Department of Energy has released a new study on the state of LED outdoor area lighting.  Authored out of its CALiPER program, the DOE notes:

  • LED outdoor lamps and luminaires are becoming more efficient
  • Replacing the fixture is preferred over LED retrofit kits or lamps
  • Like all LED products, quality of light and efficiency are all over the place (some good - some bad)
