We describe the lighting characteristics and systems of the power energy-saving type street lamp which consists of white light-emitting diodes (LEDs), and a solar-cell and battery system. The prototype street lamp has been constructed by two LED light sources, each of which includes a total of 700 units of 10 cd-class white LEDs. The white LED lighting system is mainly divided into three components which are the control, the electric-power supply and LED lighting divisions. The illuminance is normally 80 lx. When a person approaches within 2 m near the lamp, the body sensor catches the situation. The illuminance then increases to about 660 lx, which is about 50 times brighter than that of a white incandescent lamp. The color rendering index is estimated to be 85 which is similar to that of three color fluorescent tube. The illuminance distribution can be analyzed by our recently developed 'multi sources of LED light' theory.
