McKinstry will replace more than 6,200 legacy lighting fixtures with LEDs across Henderson, NV, according to LED Inside.
In addition to saving money, the LEDs will improve public lighting and are expected to last for more than 20 years. McKinstry was hired last year to audit lighting in Henderson and develop an LED-based replacement plan. The company surveyed more than 12 sites in the city and proposed a $3.1 million project. Sites for the LEDs include two trails, two parks, an outdoor pool, a justice center and several municipal buildings.
The story says that the switchover will almost $360,000 annually in utility spending. That amount is guaranteed by McKinstry. The project qualifies for more than $100,000 in incentives. An additional $240,000 in annual operational savings also is expected. The project will begin this month and is expected to be done by next April.
McKinstry recently partnered with Pueblo City Schools D60 in Colorado. The company has begun implementing energy savings measures. The project will pay for itself over the next 20 years via various incentives and guaranteed energy savings.
