The City of Windsor conversion of more than 22,000 street lights from the current high-pressure sodium bulbs to a more efficient LED version is well underway.

The total cost of the conversion project is approximately $16.6 million, but the city could recoup approximately $2.13 million of that from the retrofit program of the Independent Electricity System Operator, a Crown corporation operating Ontario’s electricity market.

It estimated that approximately 32 million dollars could be saved over 15 years on electricity and maintenance costs.
