Kenora Lights Up with New LED Streetlights

November 02, 2015

Kenora, ON – The City of Kenora will soon benefit from improved lighting quality and significant energy efficiency and cost savings. Starting Monday, November 2, installation crews will replace all of the City’s 1,970 streetlights. The new lighting system will help reduce annual electricity consumption by 73% as well as maintenance costs by 80% because LEDs last four times longer than the City’s existing streetlights.

 

The project was initiated and designed by Ontario’s Local Authority Services (LAS) and RealTerm Energy using new LED streetlights from CREE Canada, one of the world’s leading LED manufacturers.

 

In addition to being energy-efficient, LEDs provide a white, clean directional light that shines light downward onto the road where it is needed, reducing light pollution and increasing visibility and safety. Upgrading to LEDs is also an environmentally conscious choice, for it will allow Kenora to reduce its emission of greenhouse gases by 144 metric tonnes per year: the equivalent of the carbon removed by nearly 3,700 tree seedlings grown for ten years.

 

To date, over 130 Ontario municipalities have chosen to upgrade to LED street lighting with LAS and RealTerm Energy including Sioux Lookout, Emo and Barrie.
