LED Municipal Streetlight Project
Cape Light Compact, through its energy efficiency program and on behalf of the participating Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard Towns and certain Fire Districts, is advancing a demonstration project to evaluate new light emitting diode (LED) streetlight technology to save energy and money, while meeting or exceeding the current lighting levels. LED technologies are designed to use 40 – 50% less energy and last longer than existing streetlights, thereby lowering municipal budget maintenance costs.
The new streetlight installations began in January 2013 in approximately 8 selected residential and commercial/business locations in each Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard town (or fire district) who own their fixtures. Cape Light Compact anticipates to change over all streetlights, in the participating towns and fire districts, by early 2014.
FEEDBACK SURVEY IS COMPLETE. Thank you to all 90 citizens who provided helpful feedback that will help us in the full scale change out of light fixtures that we are planning for in 2013-2014.
Here’s the Installation Schedule as of 3-5-2013. Please note that this will be updated frequently, so please check back!
