In an effort to replace our aging and obsolete lighting fixtures, The County of Prince Edward is implementing a Street Light conversion strategy to replace our entire inventory of our High Pressure Sodium (HPS) streetlights with energy efficient LED. This will have an annual savings of $217,340. The LED streetlights “Greenhouse Gas Reduction” Estimates to:

  • Current Annual Energy Consumption (kWh) 1,112,832
  • Projected LED Annual Energy (kWh) 297,363
  • Annual Saving (kWh) 815,469
  • Estimated Annual Green House Gas Reduction (metric tonnes) 25
  • GreenHouse Gas Reduction over Luminarie Life of 100,00 hours (metric tonnes) 581

The LED streetlight benefits for Prince Edward County will be:

  • Lower Cost
  • Longer Life
  • Less Energy Use
  • Reduced Waste
  • Better Safety
  • Brighter & More Natural Light

The County of Prince Edward will be installing two test sites for a 2 week period:

Picton Test Site:

Lake St - Across from LCBO (see map)


Consecon Test Site:

County Road 39 & County Road 29 (see map)


Residents will be able to view the new LED street lights, with 2 functioning settings: Warmer (3000K) or Cooler (4000K). We will be using CREE cobrahead light bulbs on our existing infrastructure. We are reaching out to our residents for their input on this project, this is the chance to have "your say".

Below is a chart to help understand the difference between color temperatures: (3000k vs. 4000K)
