Chris Nye, Vice President of Commercial and Industrial Lighting, states “We hear from many cities who are struggling with implementing LED street lighting conversion programs. They tell us that much of the available information is overly technical and many of the standard specifications are difficult to understand and impossible to verify. We created this straightforward guide precisely for those communities.” Leotek’s “A Municipal Guide for Converting to LED Street Lighting” simplifies these conversion programs by detailing the process through eleven concise steps. It begins by helping to determine if a city is even a good candidate for LED street lights. The guide also covers practical tips on identifying potential funding sources, specification development, preliminary testing for manufacturers, the bid process, project implementation, and developing a long-term maintenance plan.Leotek’s “A Municipal Guide for Converting to LED Street Lighting” is available free of charge by downloading from www.leotek.com.
