Model Specification for LED Roadway Luminaires
The DOE Municipal Solid-State Street Lighting Consortium's Model Specification for LED Roadway Luminaires enables cities, utilities, and other local agencies to assemble effective bid documents for LED street lighting products.
The template is composed of two separate documents, 1) the body of the specification and appendices, beginning with Appendix B; and 2) Appendix A, to be inserted by the user before Appendix B. The user must choose ONE of two versions of Appendix A, depending on available information. Please download one of the zip files below containing the body of the specification and the appropriate version of Appendix A:
- Model Specification with Appendix A: System
System Specification (application efficacy), which characterizes luminaire performance based on localized site characteristics such as mounting height, pole spacing, number of drive lanes, input power, and required light levels and uniformity.
- Model Specification with Appendix A: Material
Material Specification (luminaire efficacy), which characterizes luminaire performance without consideration of site characteristics.
The specification is a "living document" that will be updated as needed to reflect changes in technologies and associated standards, and to incorporate feedback from users. If you would like to be notified of future updates to the specification, please submit your email address below.
