South Bruce Peninsula Estimated to Save $67,000 Annually by Switching to LED Lighting for Street Lights
At a South Bruce Peninsula council meeting on May 1st, Manager of Financial Services, Karmen Krueger, announced that staff are looking to have an audit of their lighting. This would provide them with an inventory of what lighting needs the municipality has in order to move forward with their plan to convert street lights to LED lighting.
The municipality has dedicated some time to converting lights, however, the plan is to get all lights converted to LED at the same time.
Krueger states in a report to council that the largest financial benefit is an expected annual cost savings of approximately $67,000. The initial investment of $171,000 has a payback period of around two and a half years.
The audit to understand the lighting inventory the municipality currently has, and needs is much like the audits RES provides.
