LED Streetlight Procurement Project Contract Finalized

Jenkintown Borough working in conjunction with the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission, Johnson Controls and Uni-Vest Bank has finalized the contract to replace all existing streetlights with energy efficient LED streetlights.

Jenkintown Borough Council approved joining with the DVRPC (Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission) and JCI (Johnson Control Inc.) on the five-county LED street light replacement program. The Borough has completed the extensive application / review process and all street lights are now slated to be replaced with energy saving LED street lights. The installation of the Borough wide LED street light replacements will begin in July 2017. A brief synopsis of the program is that the lighting needs have been reviewed, designed and Engineered. The LED lights will be provided and installed. The cost of the project is offset by Utility rebates and the reduced cost of electricity through energy savings. The design calculations show the project paying for itself in seven years. The lights have an expected maintenance free life of twenty years.
