The Municipality of Leamington is dedicated to innovation and efficient energy use. At their meeting of August 25, 2015, Leamington Council approved the LED Streetlight Conversion Project that will upgrade approximately 1800 streetlights to high efficiency Light Emitting Diode (LED) lights. This project is predicted to result in accumulated energy and maintenance savings of approximately $5 million over the next 20 years, and reduce streetlight energy consumption by more than 60%, a key component of the Municipality's energy management plan.
The LED Streetlight Conversion Project is slated to begin in October, 2015 and will take approximately 6 weeks to complete.
