The city of New Orleans has a new LED lighting system that has more than twice the brightness of the most common LED bulb, according to a report from Reuters.
New Orleans, a city that once boasted of having the world’s best garden lighting, has recently added its first LED streetlights.
The system was installed last week at a building on the edge of the city’s Central Business District, near the former Port of New York, the Reuters report said.
The lights come from an LED array, with one bulb for each of the street lights in the building.
The array is the largest ever installed in a New Orleans building.
A separate LED lighting unit was also installed on the same building.
According to the report, the lights are expected to generate between 15 and 50 watts of light, which is about a third of what a typical LED bulb will output.
A typical LED lightbulb emits about 60 watts of power.
