U.S. City to spend $2.6M on LED Streetlight Upgrade

News Source: 

Kent, a city located in Washington State, U.S., will be spending US$ 2.6 million to retrofit 2,600 streetlights with LEDs, reported Kent Reporter.

"There are about 6,000 street lights on the city’s roadways," said Kelly Peterson, city special projects/transportation manager. "We own nearly 2,600 of these lights and all of those will be replaced with LEDs. The other lights are owned by Puget Sound Energy or other agencies and are not a part of this project."

The LED upgrade will help the city save $ 230,000 annually in electricity costs.

The City Council's Operations Committee approved the ordinance for LEDs on April 7. The full council is scheduled to consider the measure on Tuesday, April 21.

The project to be finished later this year is expected to take six months to complete, and the city will receive a $445,000 rebate from Puget Sound Energy for the more efficient lights.

The city will be funding the project by borrowing $1 million from its sewerage operating fund, $800,000 from its self-insurance fund and $445,000 from the general fund under extra money set aside in a Strategic Investment fund.
