Economical Analysis of Alaskan Street Lights by using Light-Emitting Diode (LED) Technology

Darkness bothers Alaskans in winter. To overcome this problem depends on creative and energy saving lighting systems. The low temperature environment in Alaska causes a low failure rate and better performance of LED street lights and becomes a competitive advantage for implementation of this system. This research will analyze the process for replacement of the Alaskan street lights based on technological changing of white light LED. An innovative design of the intelligent LED streetlight system with self contained energy and self diagnosis functions will be developed on University of Alaska, Anchorage (UAA) campus as a pilot template. A proposal for quality management of LED streetlight system based on product and service lifecycle will be established. The results can be utilized to improve the operation efficiency of Alaska transportation street light systems.
