Borough of Lansdale, Pennsylvania is Paving the Way Upgrading to LED Street Lighting

 

Spring City, P.A., March 4, 2011The Borough of Lansdale, Pennsylvania announced their transition to energy efficient LED streetlights and LED illuminated bollards manufactured domestically by Spring City Electrical. 

 

Lansdale began their construction of their streetscape on February 14th, 2011.  This project includes the energy efficient LED streetlights as well as LED bollards.  Lansdale previously illuminated their streets with a twin set-up illuminated by 100 Watt Metal Halide and are switching to a single set-up.  By switching to LED light fixtures, the borough is estimated to save 71% on energy costs as well as a savings 70% on maintenance savings on their new single set up.  This project is funded by federal Transportation Equity Act (TEA_LU) bill and Main Street Funds as well as state grants.

 

“All the existing lights will be refurbished with the LED light up top with one single light instead of the dual lights that shines down that actually has a much more attractive light to it,” said Mike Riccio, Lansdale Councilman, Chair Public Works Comm. at the ground breaking ceremony on January 24th, 2011.  Spring City provided the borough with 107 Center City District LED Luminaires and 16 Washington LED bollards that consist of a COOLCASTTM heat dissipating thermal management streetlights.  These lights are also equipped with Spring City’s Crossfire LED optical systems which carry a 7-year warranty.  The Center City District LED Fixture those chose is a 74 Watt system with a color temperature of 3000k.  Lansdale also selected the Washington LED Bollard that is a 21 Watt system that is also 3000K.
