Rohnert Park, California Begins Replacement of the Streetlights with LED Luminaries
Oct 3, 2011 According to local media, Rohnert Park is moving to expand an LED lighting program using federal stimulus money.The city has already completed installation of LED lights in its parks, and now it will use about $15,000 to replace high pressure sodium street lights with LED bulbs in pilot installation project.
“We want to use this as a pilot project in conjunction with developing the LED standard for the city,” said Johnny Chung, project coordinator for the public works and community services department.
The money will allow the city to install 25 to 30 LED street light fixtures, Chung said. That would, for example, cover Rohnert Park Expressway from Redwood Drive to State Farm Drive, although the project will likely involve other streets and residential neighborhoods, Chung said.
The pilot program will help shape a citywide LED lighting plan, Councilman Jake Mackenzie said.
The city in 2009 received $164,100 in American Reinvestment and Recovery Act funds for energy efficiency projects. According to the authorities about $75,000 was used to install LED lighting in the parks and the city’s community center. About $16,000 was spent on building retrofit work. Energy savings measures at the public safety department’s headquarters cost $25,000.
