The project is on track. All demonstration sites have been selected and visited by project team, existing conditions such as lighting source type, hours of operation, utility rate schedule, etc. have been verified. A prototype luminaire currently used in the India's market arrived at the CLTC for evaluation. The luminaire operates only on 240 Volts/ 50 Hz. A universal voltage at 60 HZ version is in development and the anticipated UL listing is summer 2023.
This project will design, develop, and demonstrate a variety of hybrid power (solar, battery and grid-tied) exterior LED luminaire systems with embedded sensors and controls. Demonstration of this system intends to improve safety in streets, parking lots, and parks located in at least seven disadvantaged and low-income communities. The project aims to benefit California rate payers via lower energy cost, reliable hybrid exterior LED luminaires with significant reduction in nighttime grid energy use.
A hybrid exterior luminaire powered by both the utility grid and the integrated batteries will provide added safety and security during fires or emergency shut off events such as PG&E's PSPS program.
