Calgary LED streetlight plan would cut costs and energy

Retrofitting Calgary’s streetlights with LED technology will save money and energy, but comes at a cost, says a report coming before a city committee. A report to the Standing Policy Committee on Transportation and Transit pegs the cost of switching 19,500 residential streetlights from high pressure sodium bulbs to LEDs at $23.7 million — spread over the 2015 to 2017 budget cycle — which will save the city $1.3 million and 3.200 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions annually.
