[ARCHIVED] CVRD Upgrades Ornamental Street Lights to LED

CVRD Upgrades Ornamental Street Lights to LED

Duncan, BC - The Cowichan Valley Regional District (CVRD) will be upgrading ornamental street lights to LEDs throughout the valley this fall.

The CVRD operates and maintains a number of ornamental street lighting systems including Arbutus Mountain Estates, Cobble Hill Village, Mill Springs and Twin Cedars. These systems will upgrade existing lights to LEDs. The intent of the upgrade is to significantly reduce energy consumption while maintaining existing light output. This project will reduce electricity consumption by an estimated 75% and has simple payback of two years.

“LEDs are a proven and reliable technology,” explains Chair Jon Lefebure. “With a significant reduction in energy consumption and maintenance costs, this project ensures the sustainable service delivery of these systems into the future.”

This project is a key component of the CVRD’s Strategic Energy Management Plan with the goal of reducing the organization’s total energy usage by 25% by the end of 2018 compared to the 2012 baseline.
