Balatonfüred Town Council in Hungary, as part of its greening strategy, changed its old lighting system to GE’s public LED lighting solution, with increased energy efficiency, long-life and low maintenance.
Balatonfüred is the first town in Europe to roll out GE's LED streetlights. Most streetlamps currently in place are in desperate need of an upgrade. Streetlighting accounts for a whopping 30% of the average local authority's energy bill – lighting is a very resource-hungry utility. It becomes especially wasteful when the lights aren't operating at their most efficient and therefore haemorrhages funds that could be better used elsewhere. In Balatonfüred, a town with a population of only 13,500 people, 1,400 GE luminaires have already been rolled out, and the town is already planning to install the lighting across the entire town and reap the benefits.
