Andhra Pradesh to set a record in LED lights

Light Emitting Diode (LED) lightbulbs are making a revolution around the world, slowly but surely replacing the traditional incandescent lightbulbs.

LED lights can produce just as much luminescence or more than an incandescent light, and they use half the power to do it.

Additionally, unlike incandescent lights, LED lights to not fail and burn out. Instead, they gradually produce less and less light when they need to be replaced, but they will still produce some light.

India is no exception to this lightbulb revolution, with progress especially being made in Andhra Pradesh.


In that state alone, about 20 lakh LED street lights have been installed, and the state would like to install another 10 lakh of them. Other states, such as Rajasthan, Gujarat, and Telangana are not far behind.

The energy media advisor of the government says that converting Indian street lights to LED would save about ₹500 crore and 333 MU in energy savings in the next decade. These are some of the numerous benefits that LED lightbulbs can have.

Unlike incandescent lightbulbs, LED lightbulbs do not have filaments that burn out after a while, which gives them much longer lives.

This makes LED lights especially helpful in places where it is difficult or expensive to replace lightbulbs, such as in street lamps.

LED lightbulbs get far less hot than traditional incandescent lightbulbs.

Although they can give off much heat, most of it is dispersed by metal heat sinks, which draw the heat away from the light source. This is especially beneficial in places with hot temperatures, such as India.

LED lights provide better color rendering, which is the ability of a light source to reveal the colors of objects in comparison to a natural light source.

With LED lights, the colors and shades of things tend to be more pronounced than with incandescent lights.

This can be especially beneficial to street drivers, since it can help them recognize their surroundings much better.
