LED Lighting

The PDOP continues to pursue its goal of energy reduction with the installation of LED lighting in all outdoor park lights in 2017 and the replacement of indoor lights in all eight community centers, four park restroom comfort stations, pool facility, one sports field and three historic properties in 2018. The interior lighting transition to LED was funded through a ComEd grant that covered nearly half of the cost for the bulbs. The remaining costs were realized in savings within the first year.

Interior Lights:
Converted 38,754 watts to 16,780 watts, which is a 43% reduction in energy usage and an annual savings of $12,250 in energy costs.

Exterior Lights:
Converted 180 park walk lights, reducing energy consumption from 190 kW to 35 kW per year and saving $10,000 annually. Replaced 42 light fixtures on Stevenson field from 1000 watt to 300 watt LED fixtures, saving $11,000 annually.
