Accordingly, how many watts do street lights use?
"The lamps used in streetlights vary inboth size and consumption (typically between 35 and 250Watts) depending upon whether they are lighting aresidential area, main road or a town centre." "It is generallyassumed that the average wattage of a streetlight is about80 watts."
Subsequently, question is, what type of bulbs do street lights use? There are two types of sodium vaporstreetlights: high-pressure (HPS) and low-pressure (LPS). Ofthe two, HPS is the more-commonly used type, and it is foundin many new streetlight fixtures. Sometimes, older (pre-1970)fixtures may be retrofitted to use HPS lights aswell.
Thereof, how are street lights powered?
Electricity is sent through high-intensity dischargelamps. A high-intensity discharge lamp emits light by an arc ofelectricity created between two electrodes. The electrical arcgenerates heat, which works with the gas and metal to createlight-emitting plasma. Streetlights use bypasstechnology.
How much do street lights cost to run?
taking the average electricity cost of $0.12 kW/has a reference, the running cost for street light 40* 100 * 0.12/1000 = $0.48 per hours. If you use metal halide,halogen or high pressure sodium street lamps, we need $1running cost per hour to produce the samebrightness.
