Owen Sound selects LAS and RealTerm Energy to make LED switch

April 17, 2014

The City of Owen Sound selected Local Authority Services (LAS) and RealTerm Energy Corp. to design and upgrade its street lighting network to LEDs. The city joins an increasing number of North American municipalities exploring LEDs as an innovative cost-saving and energy-efficient lighting option.  

The Municipal Council of Owen Sound approved the LED upgrade project after LAS and RealTerm Energy presented the council with the potential to realize annual energy savings of more than 65 percent and a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 1735 metric tonnes over the street lights’ life expectancy. 

“Council was very impressed with the quality of the plan presented by LAS and partner Real Term Energy Corp.” says Mayor Deborah Haswell. “I look forward to a very timely and cost-effective transition to LED street lights.”

Owen Sound is among some 35 other Ontario municipalities who are benefitting from a unique partnership between LAS and RealTerm Energy designed specifically for Ontario municipalities. 

The plan moving forward is to start with a comprehensive review of the city's 2,000+ street lights. RealTerm will collaborate with municipal staff and LED lighting partner CREE Canada to design a network that will better serve the city's growing energy needs. The installation is anticipated to occur later this year.  RealTerm will complete all necessary documentation for Owen Sound to take full advantage of the Ontario Power Authority's saveONenergyprogram, which offers a one-time rebate of approximately $58,000 in addition to the energy and maintenance savings that LED lighting provide.

As word continues to spread about the value of upgrading to LED, LAS and RealTerm Energy are poised to assist other municipalities transition to more cost saving, energy efficient and environmentally responsive lighting solutions.
