LED to Change Nighttime View of Niagara Falls

A multi-million-dollar project to redevelop the lighting of one of the world’s most famous landmarks, Niagara Falls, is getting underway in upstate New York. Since the late 1990’s the Falls have been lit with 21 Xenon spotlights, 18 placed on a nearly century old illumination tower and three more secured on the rocky Niagara Gorge. The retro, search-light-style, lighting will be replaced by 12,600 LED lights installed on top of Table Rock, which skirts the Falls and is home to a visitor center. The new sources will provide twice as much illumination as the aging fixtures that they are replacing. The current Xenon fixtures have to be replaced every 1,900 hours, however the new fittings will last for twenty years and longer, drastically reducing maintenance costs. http://luxreview.com/article/2016/10/led-to-change-nighttime-view-of-niagara-falls-
