LED Lights

Holland Board of Public Works replaced approximately 1,600 street lights with low-energy LED bulbs. The initial cost is $480,000, but that cost will be made up in less than 6 years. The previous low pressure sodium bulbs used more than triple the wattage and their performance deteriorates over time. The new LED bulbs will save an average of more than $50 per bulb per year in energy and also will require less maintenance.
