LEDs used to upgrade parking garage in Germany

After a demo project in the garages of Bahnhofstrasse in the City of Munster (Germany) they decided to upgrade their system, one on one, (420 lamps) with the Premium Power LED. LED lighting designed for parking garages. WBI, the parking organization of the City of Munster, is experiencing the upgrade as ‘great light output, safe and in addition huge savings’.

Car park in Munster now is experiencing 65% energy savings on lighting. The city of Münster is one of the first cities in Germany to have a unique scoop for durability. The car park at the Bahnhofstrasse is the greenest park in the city. In cooperation with the WBI group Stadwerke Münster has the most modern LED lighting.

These lights have a lifetime of 80,000 hours with savings of 65% and 85% compared to conventional fluorescent lighting, with the possibility to dim them even more. Besides the energy and maintenance cost savings and the Co2 savings are also huge. WBI saves per year, with the placement of 420 Premium Power LED lights, up to 35,000 euros and 170,000 kilowatts, which is 102,000 kilograms of CO2.

The project is a wonderful collaboration between the City of Münster, the WBI and the LED technology.
The intention of this lovely green savings also extends to more car parks and buildings throughout Germany.
