West Kelowna in Canada Converts Streetlights to LED

News Source: 

West Kelowna, a Canadian City will be converting 1,750 high pressure sodium streetlights to LEDs, reported Kelowna Capital News.

The lights are expected to save CA $4,500 (US $3,361.47) alone from a one year pilot project that the city has rolled out.

A total of 193 streetlights around the city will be changed to LEDs during the pilot project, and will cost an estimated CA $60,000 including a CA $10,000 from electric service company B.C. Hydro.

The city streetlights excluding those owned by B.C. Hydro and private owners operated by the Kelowna Province include 1,750 streetlights.

Additionally, the city estimates it will save maintenance costs from LED lights longer life expectancy of 15 to 20 years compared to HPS lights five to ten years.

City officials estimated last week, the streetlight upgrade will save CA $13 million over a period of 15 years after the lights are installed.

The pilot project will help city authorities to gather information needed to prepare its business plan to present to the council prior to making a full conversion.

The city council authorized the pilot project Tuesday night.
