Bright Choices® provides lighting for customers of all spots and stripes, including ZooTampa!
With Tampa Electric’s Bright Choices outdoor lighting program you’ll get smart and efficient lighting, a wide variety of design styles and turnkey service. It’s as easy as flipping a switch! And, you don't have to be a Tampa Electric customer to benefit.
What kind of lights?
Bright Choices offers only premium Light-Emitting Diode (LED) lights. LED lights produce a bright, natural white light that's similar to daylight. And if you're interested in LEED® certification, environmentally friendly LEDs are the way to go.
All Bright Choices LEDs include an advanced photocell that makes them “smart.” For example, if a light goes out, it will send a signal to Tampa Electric, so we know that a repair is needed. That means quicker repairs to you!
More LED benefits:
- Energy savings – LEDs use up to 60 percent less energy and require less maintenance than conventional lighting.
- Performance – LEDs minimize glare and capture the authentic colors of objects lit at night. They also achieve full brightness almost instantly and offer precise control over lighting patterns.
- Long Life & Durability – LEDs can last 50,000 hours or more, are highly resistant to shock and vibration and are not sensitive to extreme temperatures.
- Environmentally friendly – LEDs contain no harmful substances such as mercury. They are dark-sky friendly because they focus light on the lighting target, generating less stray light pollution.
