Cree’s New LEDway HO Roadway Luminaire Replaces 400W HPS And Cuts Energy Use In Half

Cree, Inc. (Nasdaq: CREE) is building on the industry’s most versatile LED street light portfolio with the LEDway ® High Output (HO) LED street light. With its higher lumen output, the new LEDway HO LED street light enables the LEDway Series to address large multi-lane freeways and expressway applications, easily replacing inefficient High Pressure Sodium (HPS) lighting up to 400W from a single platform. The Cree ® LEDway HO LED street light provides highly focused, directional light at nine adjustable lumen output levels, reducing energy consumption by more than 50 percent compared to outdated HPS street lights in most roadway applications.

“As we’ve already seen with thousands of LEDway Series installations throughout North America and Europe, the Cree LEDway HO LED street light represents another example of why municipalities, Departments of Transportation and Investor Owned Utilities should move to proven Cree LED lighting over incumbent, inefficient technologies now,” said Greg Merritt, Cree vice president, marketing, lighting. “With virtually no maintenance and using significantly less energy than a 400W HPS, the LEDway HO LED street light dramatically lowers customers’ total cost of ownership. And when you include our 10-year limited warranty, the already compelling case for Cree LED lighting gets even better.”

Designed for multi-lane freeways, expressways and roadways, Cree’s LEDway HO LED street light is enabled with NanoOptic ® Precision Delivery Grid™ optic technology to deliver better optical control and more uniform, white light than HPS. And with the LEDway HO LED street light’s adjustable lumen output option, customers can use one type of fixture to meet the lighting and energy needs for a variety of applications.

The Cree LEDway High Output LED street light is sold through Cree lighting sales channels throughout the U.S. and Canada. Please visit www.cree.com/lighting/ledwayseries to learn more.
