DOE Municipal Solid-State Street Lighting Consortium

The 35 million streetlights in the U.S. – on every night – are one of the lighting applications attracting considerable interest for conversion to SSL products. These products can offer energy savings, reduced maintenance, and improved visibility - benefits that can tip the balance for cities concerned about the environment, safety, and the bottom line. This conversion is far from being a no-brainer, however. It requires careful product specification and evaluation. That's why a growing number of cities are evaluating LED street lighting products – and why, to help inform and harmonize their efforts, DOE last year launched the Municipal Solid-State Street Lighting Consortium, which has already grown to more than 300 primary members, including municipalities, utilities, and energy efficiency organizations.
The Consortium has developed a Model Specification for LED Roadway Luminaires.
