Replacement of LED Lights (LED)

We have put in place plans to replace all existing T5 fluorescent lamps within the HDB blocks, in our Town with LED (Light Emitting Diode) luminaires.

This includes the lightings at common areas of multi-storey car parks, corridors, staircases and void decks in our Town.

LED luminaire gives an estimated reduction in electricity consumption of 65% and they have a longer lifespan of 50,000 hours compared to 8,000 hours for fluorescent lamps.

To achieve greater savings, the LED luminaire along the corridors of the flats and parking lots of MSCPs will be installed with built-in electronic timer which would power at 50% from 0100 hours to 0700 hours, when human traffic is low. It will then operate at full power from 1900 hours to 0100 hours.

The LED lights will also be fitted with dual motion sensors at staircase landings to provide bi-directional sensing, consuming only 30% of energy in absence of human traffic to give us further savings.

The replacement work is in progress and is expected to be complete by May 2015.
