Results and Benefits
The standard P852 luminaire build was modified for Kent County Council with additional features included to meet the council’s specification and approval. The project commenced in March 2016 and is on a three year rolling project starting in residential areas which are to be completed within Q2 2017. Then eventually moving to the main roads and highways in the summer of 2017 and to be completed by December 2018. The improvement in light quality from HID to LED is evident across the districts that have been installed so far. The P852 provides exceptional optical control minimising obtrusive light, without compromising the lighting performance for both road and pedestrian use. 30,000 P852 lanterns have already been installed taking the average energy consumption from 469KW on the existing HID asset to 117KW for the P852 LED light source this equates to circa 70% energy reduction.
All 33,600 luminaires have now been delivered to the Bouygues Energies & Services depot in Kent, all on time and within the contract schedule. CU Phosco Lighting are proud to have been involved with this phase of the Kent County Council LED street lighting and highways energy reduction and public lighting improvement project.
