E40 led street light

E40 led street lightoffer many advantages over led lights, including reduced energy consumption and maintenance costs, better light color, improved visibility and reduced light pollution. LED bulbs can have a 10-15 year life expectancy, while conventional street lamps burn out after 3 to 5 years. The fixture chosen for our street lights is the Cree XSPR Version B Luminaire. This fixture maintains the familiar look of the traditional cobra head design.

Danvers Electric will start replacing streetlight in the southwestern area of Danvers, north of the Liberty Tree Mall. However, as existing high pressureled lighting manufacturersbreak, they will be replaced with new LED street light.

This LED street light conversion will save the town of Danvers money while providing better lighting and enhancing the environment.
