Lynwood is taking another step toward energy efficiency by upgrading to LED lighting in city-owned facilities and streetlights.
“By upgrading our city-owned lighting system to LED, we are not only helping the planet with energy savings, but also saving the City in energy costs,” said Lynwood City Manager Jose Ometeotl. “It’s a win-win for the environment and taxpayers.”
LED lights last two to four times longer than most fluorescent bulbs and 40 times longer than incandescent bulbs. Upgrading to LED could result in a 60-75 percent improvement in the energy efficiency of a facility’s lighting, which also dramatically lowers the cost to the City.
The city-owned facilities receiving the LED upgrades include:
– Adolfo Medina Park
– Bateman Hall
– Yvonne Burke/John D. Ham Park
– Lynwood City Hall
– Rose Park
– Community Center and Transit Station
– Lynwood Park
– Public Works Yard
– Senior Center
– Youth Center
City-owned streetlights will also receive the upgrades.
With these LED upgrades, the Lynwood is taking another step toward becoming an energy efficient city. Recently, Lynwood earned a Beacon Silver Spotlight Award from the Institute for Local Government for toward addressing climate change, promoting energy efficiency and creating more sustainable communities.
Creating a sustainable city by installing energy efficient tools such as LED lighting is made possible through the funds provided by Measure PS.
