Kirkwood Electric’s Street LED Lighting Modernization Project

Post Date:08/27/2019 8:21 AM

LED Lights 638x826

 

There are approximately 1,400 street lights in Kirkwood.  These lights use the older incandescent technology to produce light.  Last Thanksgiving Kirkwood Electric started converting these old incandescent lights to new LED lights.  So far, we’ve converted over 64 lights in the neighborhoods and over 30 lights downtown on Argonne and Taylor. 

When Kirkwood’s lights are upgraded to the new LED (Light Emitting Diode) technology the lighting system costs less to operate and maintain.  Kirkwood expects to save approximately $100,000 per year with this lighting upgrade project.
