LED streetlighting for the town of Ballymahon, Longford

VERDE LED who specialise in the design and manufacture of LED efficient lighting solutions for commercial and industrial applications have announced a contract to replace existing sodium street lighting with CREE LED streetlights resulting in energy savings of up to 70% .

CEO of VERDE LED, John Keohane is excited about the shift of public lighting in Ireland to energy efficient LED public lighting “We are thrilled with the opportunity to work with Longford county council on this project. The end result will be improved light quality for the public and reduced energy and maintenance costs for Longford County Council. I would like to thank and commend the leadership shown by Longford County Council to embrace new technology that when rolled out across the whole country will result in annual savings of tens of millions.”

Now that the Irish economy has turned a corner there is a noticeable change in energy efficient public lighting projects according to CEO John Keohane.

“Energy is a huge cost for every local authority so it makes complete sense to invest in LED streetlighting to save money that could be used elsewhere for badly needed services.

In the past 6 months we have seen a significant increase in demand for our LED streetlighting systems and have completed numerous public lighting projects nationwide and have also just supplied LED streetlighting to Laois county council for 10km of roadway lighting.”

The CREE range of LED streetlights are triple E approved and come with a 10 year warranty which gives the end customer peace of mind.

“When local authorities are investing in energy efficient projects they need to have the assurance of getting a quality product but also quality service so that they get the complete service package.

VERDE LED have a team of lighting designers, applciation engineers and energy engineers all available to support our customers in all of their requirements and this is a huge added benefit to make the change to LED lighting seemless.”
