LED Street Light System Acquisition and Conversion

Project Background


  • City identifies substantial long term cost savings to own and upgrade lights. 
  • RFP is developed and released for bidding in late summer.
  •  RealTerm Energy is selected to oversee the project to completion.


  • A complete GIS Audit is completed for the city.
  • Independent RFP was issued for both the LED fixtures and electrical contractor labor.

What's Happening

The city is acquiring 646 streetlights, currently owned and operated by CMP. Once the acquisition occurs, these fixtures will be upgraded to Warm White LED 2700K with smart controls.

Smart controls will allow the city to control the time, temperature and brightness of the lights.

The project is slated to begin late summer 2023

The project will take an estimated 4-6 weeks to complete. *Dependent on weather and crew availability
