By retrofitting the streetlights to LEDway®, the City of Anchorage will consume 50 percent less energy over the traditional HPS lamps. The energy reduction equates to saving the City and its citizens approximately $360,000 per year. In addition, with more than 100,000 hours of delivered lumens, no relamping, replacement or labor costs, the City will gain additional savings through significantly reduced maintenance costs.
“We have studied new lighting technology extensively over the past several months to validate energy and maintenance costs savings,” said Mark Begich, U.S. Senator and former Mayor of Anchorage. “We also conducted a public survey that showed our residents overwhelmingly approve of the new white LED lighting.”
