Switch to LED Lights Helps Cities Save

July 29, 2013


Add two more to the list of cities that have switched to LED. Eden Prairie and Brooklyn Park are two communities in Minnesota that are making the switch from traditional streetlights to modern, more efficient LED models.


The street superintendent for Brooklyn Park says that the retrofit of 4,300 lights will save the city about $45,000 a year on it's utility bill. "We're saving more than 50 percent of our costs on energy and our maintenance costs are almost nonexistent."


Eden Prairie is also testing out the brighter LED lights as well, and saving about 60 percent on the city's utility bill.


Though the upfront costs could deter some cities and businesses, LED lighting will last much longer than traditional lighting, and requires less maintenance. And there's the added value of utility rebates and tax incentives, which provides financial incentives to those seeking energy efficient upgrades.
