LED Street Lights – Procurement, Technology and Regulatory Issues for Munis (08.09.17)
By replacing conventional street lights with energy efficient LED technology, communities can reduce street light energy use by as much as 65 percent, generating cost savings and emission reductions. In addition, street light projects can contribute to creating a well-lit, safer, and more attractive community.
LED street lights last up to 100,000 hours and require much less maintenance than conventional ones. The opportunity to incorporate smart, connected technology such as dimming functions, enhanced law enforcement response, and parking management offers a world of possibilities. Even those communities that do not own their streetlights have options for converting those in their jurisdiction to LED.
LED Street Lights: Can Your Community Afford to Wait? (06.08.17)
Whether your municipality decides to buy LED street lights or lease them from your utility, it is prudent to understand the activities that would go into preparing for street light conversion. In addition to contributing substantially to greenhouse gas reductions, research has demonstrated that LED street lights produce savings of up to 65 percent, which is why interest in conversion is growing exponentially statewide.
Even if your community has started down the path to conversion, new information is available about NYSERDA funding opportunities, relevant Public Service Commission filings, and finance mechanisms.
