Durham to Save Thousands with Replacement of Street Lights

Downtown is getting an LED light makeover in the next few weeks as 234 less efficient street lights are replaced along the Main Street area.

According to Mike Lynch, Public Works Director, the town will be seeing a payback in 4.5 years. The new lights look like waffles or honeycombs, and are a square installation, unlike the traditional round light bulbs. They are expected to emit no heat and provide a long-lasting alternative to traditional light bulbs.

The project also includes an estimated 650 hours of jobs created by getting the grant and installing the light fixtures.

The light project will be completely paid for through a $167,310 grant to retrofit the ornamental street lighting. The grant does not require a match program.

Since the bulbs are estimated to last 12 to 15 years, as compared to the current fixtures lasting 2.8 years, the town will see savings on replacement and maintenance.

Durham has worked hard for years to be a leader in environmental stewardship, and this is one more example of our commitment to being a responsible steward to environment.
