In towns and cities across the world, the colour of night is changing. Traditional yellow sodium street lights are steadily being replaced by white LED lamps. The new lights use less energy, dramatically cutting carbon emissions and saving money. But not everybody is happy. According to a report from the BBC: www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-38526254
Where are the lamplighters?
I have recently upgraded all my in house lighting to LED including bayonet, SE and SES spots and halogen G10 etc. There is a significant drop in watts. The early low current CFL bulbs were awful and would yellow within a few months and overpriced. LED lighting has come a long way. A typical 5w led is = to a 60w bulb. I am happy with the new LEDs inside....but....a while back our street lamps were upgraded to LED and it is awful, right opposite my lounge, looks like a one eyed monster!! TOO BRIGHT!
