Abstract

Many nations have started taking steps to meet the required energy demands through different technologies to improve the local impact. As the standard of living is increased, the development of infrastructure should adapt quickly. Street lighting, one of the infrastructure should meet the consumer requirements, expansions, and growth. Countries may have more burden if still using High Pressure Sodium (HPS) lamps for street lighting. Nowadays, LED light technology becomes a candidate as it surpass the HPS lamp from both energy and money saving. The saving and local impact may be enhanced and increased, if solar power system (PV) is engaged with LED lamp for street lighting. This paper gives recommendation and show the local impact to Sultanate of Oman when street lighting is solar powered LED. The results and analysis are made for one of the Sultan Qaboos University (SQU) main roads as a case study.
