$61,000 investment into new street lighting is expected to pay for itself in
just under three years. The new lights are expected to save the
city $24,000 annually.
City of Mt. Pleasant building official
Brian Kench gave a presentation on the city’s new downtown LED lighting at the
May 29 city commission meeting.
“Between the drop in energy cost and
the savings through maintenance, we’re looking at a payback in about three
years,” Kench said. “It’s huge.”
In addition they are dimmable, can be
controlled with motion sensors and have a better control over light pollution.
