LED Streetlight Upgrade to Deliver Major Savings

November 09, 2015

Brudenell, Lyndoch and Raglan, ON – Energy-efficient, light-emitting diode (LED) streetlights will soon be making a big difference in the Township of Brudenell, Lyndoch and Raglan. The new LEDs will help reduce streetlight electricity consumption by 72% as well as reduce maintenance costs by 80% because LEDs last four times longer than the Township’s existing streetlights. Installation begins the week of November 9.

 

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 energy savings, LEDs produce a clear, white light that improves night visibility and community safety. The beams of LEDs are also more targeted than traditional streetlights to light only the streets and roadways, which helps reduce light pollution. LEDs will also reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the Township by an estimated 3 metric tons per year, the equivalent of the carbon removed by 76 tree seedlings grown for ten years.

 

“The Township of Brudenell, Lyndoch and Raglan is looking forward to the completion of this project. Upgrading our existing streetlights to LED will provide better quality of light and reduce our maintenance and energy costs,” said Reeve Garry Gruntz.

 

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