In Wichita Falls, northern Texas, there are still more than 5,700 high-pressure lamps, metal halide lamps, mercury lamps, etc. In order to replace all the bulbs with LED lights, the local government plans to cooperate with the renewable energy company Ameresco. The street light is changed to LED.
At present, there are about 2,490 LED street lights in the city of Wichita Falls. The government intends to use all the remaining street lights for LEDs. It is estimated to cost about 2.88 million US dollars. Ameresco will use the LED bulbs provided by Cooper Lighting. Life expectancy is up to 20 years. Ameresco said that after the replacement is completed, it will save 2.85 million kilowatt-hours of electricity per year for the city of Wichita Falls.
In addition to the city of Wichita Falls, the American City Alliance (NLC) has also assembled 35 towns in southeastern Pennsylvania to jointly contribute $13 million to convert public lighting equipment to LED lights. As a result of fundraising purchases and reduced energy consumption, participating governments will save $1.4 million annually in energy budgets.
The city of Lansdale also participated in the fundraising plan. The original city government was limited by budgetary shortfalls. In the past few years, it was replaced with LED bulbs when the bulbs were damaged. However, after participating in the project, it is expected to install 2,600 LED lighting devices for a million dollars.
