LED Street Light Project Saving Energy in Tweed

July 09, 2014

Installation begins the week of July 14, 2014 in Tweed, Ontario to upgrade the current street light system to light emitting diode (LED) fixtures to improve lighting quality while providing the town significant energy efficiency and cost savings. Installation crews will upgrade all of Tweed’s 267 streetlights and are expected to finish by the end of July. The LEDs are expected to help reduce the town’s energy costs by 67% and maintenance costs by 80% because LEDs last up to four times longer than the town’s existing streetlights.

Tweed’s town council chose 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 of the new LED lights from CREE Canada, one of the world’s leading LED manufacturers. Working with LAS and RealTerm Energy, Tweed was able to take advantage of the expertise and buying power of their province-wide partnership to install a cost effective solution to the problem of rising energy and maintenance costs.

RealTerm Energy is leading LED street light upgrades across Ontario communities in nearly 50 other cities and towns including Deseronto, Quinte West, Greater Napanee and Innisfil.
