LEDtronics LED String Lights light up Chicago’s North Michigan Avenue Trees

2009 marked the 50th anniversary of the lighting of the trees along North Michigan Avenue, which was the first street in the world to adopt this annual holiday event in 1959.

For half a century, the trees along the Magnificent Mile, the roughly mile-long stretch of North Michigan Avenue between Oak Street and the Chicago River, have been illuminated to signal the official kick-off of the holiday season in the Windy City and around the nation. This stretch—one of the top-ten hospitality, fine dining and retail districts in the world—is, in many ways, the heart of the city, a place that bustles with life year-round.

Christmas 2009 marked another milestone for the annual lighting event—the use of LED string lights to adorn the sidewalk trees lining the 900 block of Michigan Ave. called 900 West Shops. About 10 trees were festooned with 100 strings of LEDtronics string lights, replacing incandescent lights used previously and reducing energy consumption by 70%.

LEDtronics Uplights Improve Landscape Ambience, Security While Reducing Energy Costs in Master-Planned Community

October 29, 2010

In fulfilling its mission of aggregating products and services that reduce energy expenses for its customers, Mukherji Energy Management Associates considers using state-of-the-art, energy-efficient LEDs a no-brainer.
So, the Southern California consulting firm was not surprised with the energy cost savings it observed at a small-scale beta site in a large homeowners’ maintenance corporation—population 24,000—located in South Orange County, California. After the installation of solid-state landscaping and pool lights, and management of lamp burn time, the monthly monitoring of the electricity bill showed considerable cost reduction.
For its latest landscape-lighting project at one of the largest master-planned communities in the same coastal area, Mukherji Associates replaced halogen lamps with 32 LEDtronics GDL002-200-TPW-001M floodlights to illuminate landscaping along roadways, and 15 PAR38-7X3W-XIW-120AMD bulbs in uplight fixtures for tree and shrub lighting.
“In addition to the energy savings, these lights will save annual relamping costs as the life of these lights is 50,000 hours,” says company principal Ram Mukherji. The project was financed by San Diego Gas and Electric at zero interest over about five years, payable through energy savings per month.
