    Customer challenge


    As the 16th-century birthplace of William Shakespeare, Stratford-upon-Avon, has many Heritage lanterns which were not upgraded to LED because of the concern that the structural integrity of the lanterns would not be maintained.

    The right lighting


    Philips TrueForce LED lamps were selected, as they offer a like for like replacement into the existing lantern using the existing optic to photometrically replace the SON-T & CDO-TT lamps. 


    Warwickshire County Council replaced all Heritage & Beta 5 lanterns with Philips TrueForce and got all the benefits of the LED solution. Those include energy-efficiency, long lifetime and instant savings which will lead to more than halved energy usage and a less than two years payback period on the installation.
