As part of an energy efficiency plan, Plaza de Armas has a new lighting scheme offering a better quality of light with reduced energy consumption and CO2 emissions. A total of 47 Isla LED luminaires have replaced 188 sphere fittings to not only improve lighting levels and offer excellent visual comfort but also deliver impressive energy savings of 81%. They are also proving to be a low cost maintenance solution with a pleasing aesthetic design. The luminaires perfectly integrate the landscape and compliment the original ornamental posts which were preserved to reduce investment costs.
The Isla LED has also reduced CO2 emission by 81% and its precise light distribution will also help preserve the biodiversity. The old luminaires were directing more than 55% of their light output on the surrounding foliage which was affecting the behaviour of the migrating birds.
The façade of the town hall which borders the square is illuminated by 22 BaroLED floodlights which diffuse a gentle white light and distinguish the building.
The fountain on the square is lit by 4 Acqueo floodlights with a dynamic colour variation scheme to provide an eye-catching nocturnal feature.
