Go Green at the City
City Lights the Way with Green LED Lighting
Using American Recovery and Reinvestment Act Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant funding, the City replaced its older parking lot lights with new high-efficiency light-emitting diode (LED) lighting. A total of 24 fixtures were replaced with grant funds. Installation costs will be covered by incentives from the Energy Trust of Oregon.
This project will save the City about 21,600 kilowatt hours annually, or about $1,800 each year at 2013 electricity prices. The City will also realize additional savings associated with reduced maintenance and labor, as well as reductions in our greenhouse gas emissions. The new LED lights will use less energy, last longer, and are already providing much improved lighting quality in the parking lot.
The old parking lot lights are being 100% recycled or repurposed.
