LED Lighting Case Study – Montreal, Canada

A bridge

(Montreal, Canada) This case is about a bridge in Montreal, Canada, in order to light up the bridge at night, the city wanted to adopt a type of lighting which can not only deliver bright light output, but also improve the appearance of the bridge. Meanwhile the power consumption should not be high. To improve the appearance of the bridge, using RGB color lights would be better. After comparing between fluorescent lighting and the new generation of LED lighting, the city decided to employ the energy efficient and maintenance-free LED lighting.


As the city considered LED lighting, many solutions are available, they want to employ a solution which can be easily installed and maintained.


Trial Installation

Comparing all these solutions, the city chose some different fixtures for a trial. A set of selected products were installed in working fixtures on the external walls of the mansion, and they collected opinions and rankings. They also measured light levels for each installation.


Based on lighting effects and the energy saving calculations, the FOBSUN FSN-1221-80-H/L LED neon was chosen as the final solution.



The bridge installed around 30 pieces of FOBSUN FSN-1221-80-H/L LED neon around the bridge and the working hours of these LED lights is 12 hours per day.


Business Case Analysis

The city officials conducted an analysis to determine the economic feasibility of utilizing FOBSUN LED lighting. This analysis considered several factors including,


*Energy savings

*Maintenance savings

*Lighting effects


Energy Savings

Energy savings was a very important driver for this project, and the savings were expected to be significant using the latest LED lighting technology. The square can save 70% energy bills when compared with traditional glass neon lights.


Maintenance Savings

The long service life of the FOBSUN FSN-1221-80-H/L LED neon eliminates the maintenance cost associated with changing new lights (the replacement light cost and the associated labor).


Lighting Effects

The city officials are very pleased with the light quality and lighting effects of the FOBSUN FSN-1221-80-H/L LED neon, different single colors bring different lighting effects. Due to the high efficacy of LEDs, the bridge can save 70% energy bills compared to traditional lighting while the light quality has been improved a lot. With a long lifetime and durability, the FOBSUN FSN-1221-80-H/L LED neon hardly needs any maintenance costs and replacement costs during 20 years.
