City of Henderson Rolls out Upgrade of 6,200 Light Fixtures to LEDs

The City of Henderson in partnership with McKinstry, a design-build company specializing in energy-based retrofits, will replace more than 6,200 light fixtures across the city with energy-saving LEDs that will pay for themselves in just over seven years.

Currently, the light fixtures across the city’s trails, parks and buildings offer variable quality lighting and the majority are aging past their useful life. These lights use a significant amount of energy and are challenging to maintain. The new LED light fixtures will save the city nearly US $365,000 in annual utility costs, improve public lighting and last for over twenty years before needing to be replaced.

In 2015, the city hired McKinstry to audit all the lights across the city and develop a project to replace them with modern LED fixtures. After surveying over a dozen sites across the city, McKinstry proposed a $3.1 million project that includes lights for two trails, two parks, an outdoor pool, a justice center and several municipal buildings. The project also qualifies for more than $100,000 in utility incentives, in addition to $240,000 in expected annual operational savings and the $365,000 in McKinstry-guaranteed utility savings. 

Many of the new lights have motion or occupancy sensors and can flip between low and high output. These features help reduce the energy consumption of the fixtures beyond the guaranteed energy savings. These sensors will also enhance security in parks by alerting occupants and authorities to motion in certain areas of the parks.  Because LED light fixtures last for many years longer than the fixtures they are replacing, they require less maintenance for upkeep and reduce the number of fixtures sent to the landfill each year.

“We’re thrilled to roll out a comprehensive lighting retrofit across our public spaces,” said Mark Hobaica, City Architect. “Now, in addition to having one of the best park systems in the country, the City of Henderson will also have one of the most efficient.” 

“The City of Henderson’s award-winning parks deserve to be seen by all,” said Leslie Larocque, McKinstry’s Regional Director of the Rocky Mountain Region. “We applaud the city for their forward-looking vision and stewardship of public funds.”

Construction will begin this month and is expected to be complete by April 2017.
