The city of Parma in Northern Italy recently installed Cree Edge™ area luminaires within the nine-acre Parma Park. The park features a children’s play area, bike track, dog zone, and walking trail. The main goals of the project included not only providing a secure environment for visitors but also taking an environmental stance to reduce energy consumed by lighting fixtures throughout the park.
Although the original lighting plan called for HID fixtures, after learning how Cree Edge™ provides superior uniformity, excellent color and brightness, plus 55 percent in energy savings, the City chose Cree® LED luminaires. Cree Edge™ fixtures blend seamlessly into the ambiance of the park and help to highlight the natural beauty of the surrounding area.
