Independence, MO Expects Large Savings with LED Streetlights

The Missouri city-owned utility, Independence Power and Light, has calculated that moving from HID fixtures to the new LED fixtures it expects to save roughly $450,000 per year in energy and maintenance costs. The new lights will give off a white light, improving the quality of light, and when citizens were informally surveyed, more than 75 percent gave a favorable rating to the new lights. The estimated cost of the project is $4.2 million, and the city said it will use $250,000 in funds from the federal stimulus bill to help pay for the streetlight LED project.
