SaskPower Upgrading Street Lights To LED
As part of their commitment to conserving energy and providing more reliable street lighting SaskPower is in the process of swapping out the presently used High Pressure Sodium Vapour (HPSV) street lights with LED lighting.
As part of the switch over 8,800 bulbs will be swapped over in parts of Moose Jaw, Lloydminister, Regina and Saskatoon in 2019.
The new LED lighting is being installed at no additional cost and may when enough are installed mean reduced costs to municipalities according SaskPower's web-site.
Not only will the new LED lighting be more energy efficient the increased longevity will mean more reliable lighting with less outages. In the past Council dealt with resident concerns about non-functional lighting with SaskPower.
The new LED lights are a warm white colour so as not to disrupt sleep patterns white-blue LED lights are known for.
The HPSV lights will be recycled as part of the program.
