LED Streetlight Conversion Project 2020

The City of Greater Sudbury continues to take proactive steps to address climate change issues and find opportunities to reduce energy consumption at public facilities. The latest initiative involves replacing existing streetlights with energy-efficient LED lights, reducing the municipality’s carbon footprint and creating savings. The project supports City Council’s declaration of a climate change emergency and commitment to the Community Energy and Emissions Plan (CEEP).

The project was approved as part of the 2020 Budget process and will see approximately 11,000 lights installed throughout all of Greater Sudbury at a cost of approximately $5.6 million. Once complete, the project is expected to result in over $1 million in energy savings per year.

The project started in late December 2019 with a streetlight assessment followed by design and fixture selection. Installation began in June and is ongoing with the project anticipated to be completed by the end of November.
