City of Bethlehem, PA Selects TEN to Upgrade Streetlights to LED Technology
The City of Bethlehem has selected The Efficiency Network (TEN) to upgrade over 5,000 Penn DOT and City and Utility owned streetlights to LED technology. The project will save over 2 million kilowatt-hours of electricity and more than $250,000 per year. Read an article on this project at Lehigh Valley Live.
The City’s existing street lighting fixtures are high-intensity discharge (HID), high pressure sodium (HPS). In addition to saving money on energy costs, this upgrade to LEDs will reduce maintenance costs and associated lane closures, as LED fixtures have a longer lifespan than HID lamps. The improved light quality will also result in greater visibility and safety on the City’s streetscapes.
