The town wide LED streetlight conversion program is set to get underway in LaSalle.
“One of the goals of our current Strategic Plan is to ‘Promote a Healthy and Environmentally Conscious Community’. Conversion to LED streetlights helps us meet this objective,” said Mayor Ken Antaya. The Town of LaSalle’s Strategic Plan sets out the high level direction for the municipality during this term (2015-2018) of Council. The strategic plan contributes to the development of each department’s annual business plans and budgets.
The contract was awarded to Ameresco, who will begin replacing streetlights in December. It is expected that about 1,000 lights of the 3,643 existing streetlights will be replaced by the end of December, with the remainder being replaced in early 2016. Residents of LaSalle will begin to see the contractor firstly on Laurier Parkway, then moving into their subdivisions.
In 2014, the Town of LaSalle began investigating the conversion of all existing streetlights into LED streetlights. LED streetlights use 65% to 70% less hydro than the current high pressure sodium (HPS) streetlights. LED streetlights have a longer projected useful life, which will result in significant long term savings to the Town of LaSalle as they will be replaced less often.
