Work has begun to convert the city’s 7,205 streetlights to Smart technology Light Emitting Diode (LED) streetlight fixtures, which will reduce energy use, electricity costs and maintenance costs.
The impact will be as follows…
Energy costs reduced by 54%
Maintenance costs reduced by 80%
Reduced light pollution (the LED fixtures are “Dark Sky Compliant” as all light is directed downward)
Better light quality for pedestrians and vehicle traffic
