Roll out LED Streetlight Retrofit Project In Roll out LED Streetlight Retrofit Project
2016-03-18 Post By: Longmangroup“More than 300 LED streetlights are being installed in 13 rural townships including Matawai, Motu, Ruatoria, Patutahi between 14 March and 27 May, ” says Tairāwhiti Roads general manager Dave Hadfield.
Work to install the new lights starts this week in the district’s townships. Replacements in Te Karaka with the township upgrade and city center with repainting of street poles has also begun.
Hadfield says contractors will be replacing the 70–250watt high pressure sodium lights with 27–100watt LED luminaires.
“Savings from this program will be in excess of NZ $20, 000 (US $ 13, 697) a year on both combined electricity and less maintenance required for repair and replacements, over a longer life as the lights will last a minimum of ten years.
We’re one of many councils in New Zealand who are changing to LED streetlights, and one of the first regions to adopt a ‘whole town by town’ approach’.”
The new improvements will produce clearer more efficient light, providing higher road definition of things like road markings, pedestrians and vehicles, and will also provide significant ongoing savings in power use.
