Item Description:

title

Consideration of Resolution No. 19-1016 authorizing the 2019 Streetlight LED Conversion Project, PN 3-C-009-19..

Body

________________________________________________________________________________

Summary:

This project includes the conversion of 7,500 city-owned streetlights from high pressure sodium to LED fixtures.  Conversion to the LED fixtures will result in potential energy savings to the City due to lower electricity costs.  Simple payback on the investment is expected in 6 to 8 years.

 

On January 6, 2015, City Council authorized $1,865,000 for the conversion of 3,000 city-owned streetlights from high pressure sodium to LED fixtures on collector and arterial streets.  It was estimated that the conversion would be completed by the end of 2019.  With the purchase of Kansas City Power & Light owned streetlights in 2017, the cost of the project increased and the timeframe for replacement of those fixtures was extended through 2022.

 

This Resolution will authorize $570,000 to be spent on conversion of streetlights from high pressure sodium to LED fixtures.  To date, 3,400 streetlights have been converted to LED fixtures.
