Mayor Wild recently announced the installation of new LED street lights in the historic Annapolis Park subdivision. The new lights, replacing the older incandescent street lights, will not only provide greater visibility to the residents of Annapolis Park but will save the City an estimated $2,100 per year in electricity expenses.
Thirty (30) new lights have been installed with the new lighting fixtures, 103 watt Cobrahead LED as opposed to the old 175 watt mercury vapor lights.
Funding for the $20,000 project came from Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant funds and DTE provided the labor at no cost to the City or its residents. Thanks DTE!!!
In a recent press release, Mayor Wild indicated that this will be the City’s first use of LED energy efficient technology for street lighting and that this pilot project will allow the City to determine the extent of cost savings before moving forward on larger street lighting projects.
One more step toward Westland’s long-term sustainability as it continues its leadership role in Michigan!!!
