Light Emitting Diode (LED) Streetlight Replacement Program
Municipalities in Ontario, including the Town of Halton Hills, are actively replacing High Pressure Sodium (HPS) streetlights to LED (Light Emitting Diode) streetlights to reduce energy use and gas emissions. The LED Streetlight Replacement program is expected to reduce the overall energy consumption by approximately 55% to 60%, which will reduce the greenhouse gas emissions.
Aligning with the Mayor’s Community Energy Plan and the Community Sustainability Strategy, the Transportation and Public Works department will be launching the LED Streetlight Replacement program in partnership with SouthWestern Energy Inc.
LED streetlights are installed on all new roads within the subdivisions. In addition, over the last few years, the Town has been installing LED streetlights at individual rural intersections, new traffic signal locations and along Maple Avenue.
With successful implementation of this program, the next phase will be to extend the LED replacement program to municipal parks, trails, pathways, parking lots and facilities.
