LED Decorative Street Light Conversion Project, Phase 3
The City of Naperville is beginning the final phase of a project to replace all City of Naperville street light fixtures with new energy-efficient Light Emitting Diode (LED) fixtures. Previous phases of this project have replaced 8,954 arterial and residential street light cobra head fixtures, which are estimated to save the City $4.56 million in 10 years through reduced energy usage, re-lamping and maintenance costs.
The third and final phase of the LED conversions occurring this year will replace 2,843 decorative and location-specific street light fixtures throughout various areas within the City. These areas will include street light fixtures in the downtown Central Business District (CBD), the Historic District, other business districts, parking lot lighting and certain non-cobra, post-top style fixtures in subdivisions throughout the City. Street light fixtures along state-owned roadways will also be converted to LEDs.
The City has selected LED lighting samples based on performance, energy savings and aesthetics to replace these current street light fixtures. These samples will be available for viewing in three pilot locations. Lights along state-owned roadways are subject to exact specifications and will not be piloted.
