LED pole lights are changing the way cities, departments of transportation, parking lot owners, and sports field managers illuminate their environments after the sun goes down. Compared to incandescent, metal halide, high pressure sodium, fluorescent, and other old lighting technology, LED retrofits are allowing 50% and more reduction in energy costs. Beyond just the cost-savings from lower energy demand of the light source, LEDs work well with dimmers and therefore couple well with lighting sensors so they only output as much light as necessary. As the sun goes down, the light increases, rather than switch on full blast right as the sun hits the horizon.

LED pole lights are now available in a variety of color temperatures

LED Pole Lights on a bridge LED pole lights are a popular choice for streets and roadways.

Technology on these fixtures is advancing quickly, and LED pole lights are available in a variety of color temperatures. Cooler color temperatures with a high CRI might be preferred for visibility on a highway, while a warmer color temperature is preferable on a residential street. LED pole lights are here to stay and the cost-savings are undeniable. That is why you will not find any other technology like induction or fluorescent on this list. 

We surveyed our sales representatives who are all LS1 lighting-certified, and here are the LED pole lights that they recommend most to customers. Your project is unique, and we want to make sure you get the light fixture that fits your needs.
