Outdoor lighting plays a crucial role in the safety and security of our streets and public places. Today outdoor lighting has to be smarter to comply with new legislation, environmental challenges and requirements to reduce energy usage.
This is where the latest outdoor, roadway and street lighting solutions from GE come into play. Nobody has more experience in outdoor lighting than GE. They first offered gas street lighting in the late 1800s. During the 20th century, GE became widely respected for the quality and performance of our carbon arc search lights and later, for fixtures using electric lights.
GE scientist Nick Holonyak invented the first practical visible-spectrum light-emitting diode (LED), a device that GE colleagues at the time called “the magic one” because its light, unlike infrared lasers, was visible to the human eye.
Today GE is a world leader in the innovation, design, production and application of energy-efficient Evolve™ LED Lighting Fixtures as well as traditional HID (High Intensity Discharge) fixtures.
