Installation of LED lamps

If you are using a significant number of fluorescent tubes in your office, the total wattage used can add up quickly. This amounts to a significant electric bill at the end of the month. With solar street light replacement tubes now on the market, you can replace your existing fluorescent tubes with LED tubes. LED tubes typically run at about 15 watts for standard four-foot long tubes, whereas your old fluorescent tubes run at 32 to 40 watts per tube. Installation of LED tubes will involve a little retrofitting of the light fixture, but the cost savings will be well worth it.


Connect the black (hot) wire that used to run to the ballast to both wires coming from one of the sockets with a wire nut. These wires may be red or blue. Connect the white (neutral) wire to both of the solar LED street Light wires coming from the other socket with a wire nut. If your fixture does not have a starter, the neutral wire may already be hard-wired to a socket. Connect the green (ground) wires together with a wire nut.

With advancing technology in green, environmentally-friendly lighting, many people are turning from the fluorescent tubes and replacing them with light emitting diode (LED) lights. Technology surrounding LED lighting is improving quickly and the efficiency and durability of LED lights leads some to switch to LED tubes over fluorescent. However, some want to use the fluorescent tubes because the fluorescent lighting is brighter or because they like the familiar hue of the fluorescent light. Another reason to switch is that LEDs are more expensive than fluorescent tubes.


Line the twin electrical connecting pins of the LED tube with the receptacles on both sides of a standard T8 fluorescent fixture, slide the LED tube into place, then turn the bulb one-half turn to lock it into position. Flip the light switch on and light up the office.Gently grab and twist the fluorescent light bulb one-half turn so the electrical contact pins on each end release, then pull it out and away. Place it off to the side.
