Algoma getting help from experts with LED street lighting

The City of Algoma is using expert guidance as it transitions to LED street lights.  Such lights are more cost-effective than current lighting systems  The city wants to avoid the problems other communities have faced with buying and installing LED systems that fail long before their useful life ends.  Public Works Director Matt Murphy says that's where “Focus on Energy” is helping with Algoma's three-year LED transition plan.

 

 

The City of Detroit spent $185-million for LED street lights that were expected to last a decade.  It's now spending up to $10-million to replace bulbs installed from 2014 through 2016  that are starting to dim.  Detroit is also suing the manufacturer to recover its' costs.
