Cree’s XLamp XR-E LEDs chosen for solar-powered streetlights in China

Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA says that Guangzhou Multi-Cell Semiconductor Lighting Technology Co Ltd (Multi-Cell) is installing energy-saving, solar-powered streetlights based on its XLamp XR-E power LEDs in a 20-light demonstration project in Guangzhou, China.

Cree’s white XR-E LEDs produce typical luminous flux of 80 lumens at 350mA, yielding 70 lumens per watt. Using the LED in Multi-Cell’s MZSLB-130 streetlight has significantly improved its performance, says the firm’s general manager Peng Zhoulong. “The Cree XR-E is very bright and efficient but also exceptionally consistent and stable. Its package design is especially beneficial to the mass-production assembly line, providing a streamlined manufacturing process,” he adds.

“The revolution in LED lighting offers the globally vital benefit of energy savings from an environmentally friendly technology,” says Norbert Hiller, Cree’s general manager and VP for XLamp power LEDs. “Especially in geographies of the world where conserving energy is a high priority, the demand for LED streetlights is growing rapidly.”
