LED lighting retrofit expected to decrease township’s street lighting electrical usage by over 25,000 kWh in first year – plus reduce greenhouse gas emmisions equal to saving 94 trees per year
Aston, PA (PRWEB) February 26, 2013
Stouch Lighting, a lighting distributor specializing in LED lighting and energy efficient lighting products, announces the completion of a street-lighting LED retrofit project projected to save the Township of East Caln, Pennsylvania, over $12,700 in energy costs over the next five years.
The LED lighting retrofit stretches over both commercial and residential street areas and includes replacing the previous, inefficient mercury vapor (MV) and high pressure sodium (HPS) street light fixtures with more energy efficient functional LED lighting fixtures and ornamental LED lighting fixtures.
Director of Finance at East Caln Township, Bonnie Lucy, remarks, “Stouch Lighting handled the whole LED lighting retrofit turnkey -- including installation. They used their lighting expertise to make the most efficient lighting recommendations to cover our needs and were particularly helpful in specifying the proper lighting in the residential areas where light trespass was a concern.” Lucy also notes, “The streets are so much brighter now, and that brightness is consistent throughout the township, offering the public more security than ever before. That yellow-green glow that the mercury vapor fixtures emitted and the orange look that the high pressure sodium lights seemed to cast over the streets are gone.”
The street lighting LED retrofit also qualifies East Caln Township for receiving cost reduction incentives from their local utility company and, in addition is projected to reduce East Caln Township’s greenhouse gas emissions by more than 32,000 pounds per year (equivalent to 94 trees saved per year).
