Hubbell Lighting’s LEDs Light up Greenville's Main Street

Hubbell Lighting has cooperated with the City of Greenville, SC, Duke Energy and GE to announce the launch of a new LED street lighting pilot program along the city's Main Street as a part of the City's "Greening of Greenville" program.

According to the program, Hubbell Lighting will utilize its four different types of LED outdoor pedestrian lighting fixtures to replace 250 watt high-pressure sodium (HPS) lamped street lights known as cobra-heads, and 215 watt mercury-vapor pedestrian post-top fixtures along the sidewalks on the Hyatt Regency block of Main Street between Beattie Place and East North Street. The four types include Parkway Square, Cubic Indirect, Providence and Promenade.


All of the new LED lighting fixtures from Hubbell Lighting take advantage of the newest solid-state lighting technology and offer significantly improved energy efficiency (40-85%) over the old mercury-vapor and high-pressure sodium fixtures that were previously installed in the 1970s and 80s. The new fixtures also have a very long life expectancy (approximately 50,000 hours), which will bring an added benefit to the City in reduced maintenance costs.

Additionally, Hubbell Lighting deployed this energy-efficient technology over the center drive lanes of Main Street with its new Roadway RM LED cobra-head street lighting fixtures. The state-of-the-art optics feature 48 LEDs (68w) that deliver more visible and uniform light with an unprecedented 89 lumens per watt energy efficiency. The Roadway RM LED Series is also available as a retrofit kit (Roadway RF LED kit) for use in existing HPS cobra head fixtures from other lighting manufacturers. The Roadway RM LED Series can be specified with an optional photocell to help the City maximize its energy savings by automatically shutting the luminaire off during daylight hours without any additional programming or maintenance required. The installation of these streetlights provides the City of Greenville with a low maintenance, high efficiency LED solution that has more than four times the life of HPS with over 65% energy savings.
