Deco Lighting Provides 50% Energy Savings with Induction Lighting for Throgs Neck Bridge in New York


Deco Lighting replaced inefficient light fixtures with new Induction lighting on New York’s famous Throgs Neck Bridge to provide 50% energy savings, long term maintenance savings, and contribute to the green environmental commitments of New York City and the Metropolitan Transit Authority. Deco Lighting’s Induction
technology luminaires are the ideal solution for bridge lighting with 100,000 hour life, durable vibration resistant performance, and reliable cold weather operation.

The U.S. civil infrastructure market is growing to address much needed improvements for highways, bridges, tunnels and transit systems. An estimated $1.6 trillion is needed over the next five years to bring the U.S. infrastructure to good condition, according to the American Society of Civil Engineers. A key component in these improvements is new lighting that provides improved energy efficiency, maintenance cost savings, and green environmental qualities that reduce carbon emissions in the worldwide effort to reduce global warming. Deco Lighting’s Induction Lighting provides the best solution for these new green lighting requirements.

On the Throgs Neck Bridge, Deco D536i 80 watt Induction luminaires provide clean white color for superior visibility and safety, and immediately save the MTA and the City of New York approximately 50% in utility energy savings versus the existing 150 watt HPS 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 New York more money in four cycles of relamping maintenance costs. Deco Induction lighting is ideal for bridge,
tunnel and transit applications because of the 100,000 hour lifespan which is a major benefit in difficult to access mounting locations for relamping that can create costly interruptions
of vehicular traffic. Other significant benefits of Induction lighting include high efficiency with up to 50% less wattage required, vibration resistance due to the electrodeless lamp
design, cold weather starting down to minus 40C/F degrees, instant on performance, excellent 90 CRI color, and superior lumen maintenance over the life of the system.

The Throgs Neck Bridge was planned in the 1940’s by the famous New York City urban planner Robert Moses and designed by famed New York City bridge designer Othmar Ammann, responsible for the George Washington, Bronx-Whitestone, Verrazano-Narrows, and Triborough Bridges. Considered one of the best suspension spans in the U.S., the Throgs Neck Bridge links the Long Island Expressway and Grand Central Parkway with the New England Thruway. Built at a cost of $92 million, the Throgs Neck Bridge opened in 1964 and has undergone many comprehensive rehabilitation projects, including electrical systems and lighting.
