Deco Lighting Revitalizes Downtown Phoenix with New Induction Lighting to Go Green and Save Energy


Many U.S. cities have experienced the decline of their urban centers due to economics, safety concerns and suburban sprawl. The City of Phoenix, Arizona has boldly addressed this issue with a key component to reverse this trend: New green technology Induction lighting from Deco Lighting of Commerce, CA.

Downtown Phoenix suffered from poor lighting from inadequate light fixtures using 150 watt HPS (high pressure sodium) lamps. These lamps are suitable for highway lighting and industrial applications due to their long 24,000 hour life, but possess many undesirable features for urban centers. Notably, the characteristic yellowish color cast of HPS lighting can be detrimental to retail signage, building facades, storefronts, pedestrian and vehicular visibility and safety. HPS lamps also require several minutes of warm-up time for full brightness when first energized, and similarly long periods for restrike when
power interruptions occur. HPS lamps also exhibit an annoying and unsafe property of frequent on/off cycling when approaching the end of their lifespan.

Phoenix city officials found an ideal green solution with Induction lighting from Deco Lighting. Installed in custom designed architectural towers, Deco D521i 80 watt Induction luminaires provide clean white color for superior visibility and
safety, and immediately save the City of Phoenix approximately 50% in utility energy savings versus the existing 150 watt fixtures. With 100,000 hour life, the new Induction fixtures provide more than four times the service life of the HPS system, saving the City of Phoenix more money in four cycles of relamping
maintenance costs. The new Induction lighting offers other benefits, including instant on performance, durability, higher efficiency, and superior lumen maintenance over the life of the system.

The vastly improved quality of lighting and safer environment has resulted in an influx of retail shoppers, entertainment and restaurant patrons to downtown Phoenix, and a rejuvenation and expansion of downtown businesses, commercial and residential projects. The choice of new green technology lighting has also
enhanced the City of Phoenix as a municipality on the forefront of the use of intelligent, energy saving products and practices that improve the environment, and help reduce carbon emissions that contribute to global warming.
