"Equipping a Locomotive with 15 L.E.D. LAMPS can realize $1500.00 in Fuel Savings per year per Locomotive" (on 24/7)
Cost Analysis by 3rd party Class 1 Railroad
Question: HOW IS SO MUCH FUEL $$$ SAVED?
Answer: Electricity produced on a Diesel Locomotive is over 12 times more expensive to produce as compared to electrical grid costs.
|Electrical Grid – In home / In office||Diesel Locomotive|
If calculated at a hydro rate of $0.06 per kWh, daily savings for one replaced lamp would be $0.0648 per day, annual savings would be:$23.65/yr saved
If calculated at .25 Gallon per kWh and $0.75 per quarter Gallon, daily savings for one replaced lamp would be $0.828 per day, annual savings would be:$302.22/yr saved per bulb

"Railhead’s LED lamp takes 4 Watts electrical power at normal locomotive levels of 70 to 75 V, and as with earlier-tested LED lamps, there will be a fuel saving if it is used in place of a standard 75 V 50 W incandescent lamp on locomotives such as in step lights and in number board boxes."
"Calculated at .25 Gallon of fuel per kWh and $0.75 per Quarter Gallon and compared to a 75 V 50 W incandescent lamp, around $0.0345 will be saved per Railhead LED lamp per burning hour, so it will take 29 burning hours or 1.21 continuous days for pay-back of each dollar of a lamp's cost."
"One quarter gallon of #2 diesel fuel has a total energy content of 9 kWh, and that "9" needs to be modified by the efficiency of the diesel-alternator set to get gallons per kWh of electricity, so if the conversion was around 11% efficient, the general rule of thumb (provided to me by CP Calgary) of one quarter gallon per kWh for locomotive auxiliary electrical power would be good."
"Over an LED lamp's projected working lifetime of 50,000 hours, worthwhile savings of locomotive downtime, material and labor from elimination of lamp failures and changes are also expected."

"Earlier LED options were not evaluated for beam width as they had more of spot than flood beams, but the Railhead lamp with its lens providing a much wider beam has changed that. "
