LED Streetlight Upgrade to Bring Savings to Greater Napanee

October 22, 2015

GREATER NAPANEE, ON – Greater Napanee residents will soon start noticing improved lighting along streets and roads. Installation crews are upgrading all of the Town’s 967 streetlights to light-emitting diode (LED) fixtures. The Municipality selected Local Authority Services (LAS) and its partner RealTerm Energy to assess its existing street light network, create an energy efficient and cost-effective street lighting design and coordinate the purchase and installation of the new LED lights from CREE Canada, one of the world’s leading LED manufacturers.

 

The upgrade will help reduce the Town’s electrical consumption by 63% because LEDs require far less electricity than the lights they are replacing. Maintenance costs will also be reduced by up to 80% because LEDs last four times longer than the Town’s existing streetlights. LEDs are also more environmentally friendly by annually reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 35 metric tonnes, the equivalent of the carbon removed by nearly 900 tree seedlings grown for ten years. Other benefits of LED fixtures are the clear white light they produce as well as their ability to better target beams onto the streets and roadways, improving visibility and safety in addition to reducing light pollution.

 

 “We are proud to serve the Town of Greater Napanee and help them achieve significant energy and cost savings,” said Mark Gibson, Associate Director, Business Development at RealTerm Energy. “Our goal is to make this upgrade easy and energy-efficient for the Municipality.”

 

To date, more than 130 municipalities in Ontario have chosen to upgrade to LED street lighting with LAS and RealTerm Energy including Perth, Tweed and Barrie.
