Abstract

This work is focused on the efficacy of regulated LED lamps for effective lighting of rural community households in Nigeria. The result shows that most Nigerian household that were poorly lit by kerosene wick lamp are gradually adapting the light emitting diodes (LED) based lamps. However, since the power supply to this LED lamps are not regulated, the LED lamps suffer illumination looses at faster rate thereby discouraging users. Regulated LED lamps have been shown in this work to provide more stable and long lasting illumination levels for the user.
