LED there be Light
Tampines is now brighter as new Light Emitting Diode (LED) lights are being installed at HDB blocks, open spaces and car parks. The exceptional brightness is attributed to LED’s distinct light distribution. Not only does this enhance the safety of our shared spaces, the switch from traditional light sources to LED is an effective means of reducing our carbon footprint.
Throughout Tampines, the Town Council has installed new LED lights which have now replaced existing public lightings at HDB blocks, open spaces and car parks. Unlike fluorescent lights that contain harmful chemicals such as mercury, LEDs contain no toxic elements and could be disposed of safely.
The lifespan of LED lights surpass that of traditional ones by up to six times. This reduces the frequency of replacements, leading to cost and resource savings, as well as reliability of lightings at our common spaces. In addition, unlike fluorescent lights that contain harmful chemicals such as mercury, LEDs contain no toxic elements and can be disposed of safely.
The Town Council has already noted a reduction in energy consumption and will continue to explore ways of using technology to build a more energy and cost efficient town.
