Cree LEDs Light Up the Largest Municipal Street Lighting Project in China
The Municipal Bureau of the Beibei District initiated the project to improve the living environment for local citizens and to meet China's stringent roadway lighting requirements for light efficacy, brightness, luminance, heat dissipation and service lifespan. Featuring Cree XLamp LEDs, street lights engineered by Chongqing Silian Optoelectronics Science and Technology Corporation (Silian), a leading LED lighting company in China, the new lighting replaced antiquated sodium-vapor street lighting along the Yuwu Highway, extending from Chongqing to Wusheng.
Silian developed and manufactured the intelligent lighting control system, which features an advanced wireless network management system that detects lighting issues with sensors and can adjust the brightness of the LED street lights in accordance with vehicle and pedestrian traffic flow. In conjunction with LED street lighting, this control system enables optimal lighting and energy efficiency for the Beibei District.
