LED Street Lights

See the Light: DMEA Helps Towns Install Street Light Upgrades

It’s difficult to come up with any aspect of street lighting that isn’t improved when old High-pressure Sodium (HPS) or Mercury-Vapor lights are replaced with LEDs.

1) are more reliable
2) require far less maintenance–reducing roadside risks during repairs
3) last substantially longer
4) provide higher quality light and
5) use about half the energy of their predecessors.

These are just a few of the reasons DMEA Energy Services has been facilitating the replacement of old street lights with LEDs. The initiative has come to life in two pilot projects:

1) San Juan Bypass, Montrose: 14 LED street lights now shine across from Sunshine Peak Apartments just after the bend in the road. HPS lights still line the bypass both south and northwest of this stretch, so the difference should be noticeable.

2) Town of Crawford: The Town of Crawford recently purchased 34 LED street lights. DMEA will replace the town’s antiquated mercury vapor streetlights with these new LEDs. With each of these new lights using less than 1/2 of the energy that the old ones used, the town will see a payback of approximately 22 months.


See the Light:  Drive at night, in downtown Crawford or along the San Juan bypass in Montrose and you’ll see the LED street light pilot installations in operation.

 (see KKCO Channel 11's Coverage of the LED Street Light program)

It’s rare to find true “win-win” situations, but these LED projects seem to fit that description perfectly. DMEA expects to save substantially on maintenance costs with the new LED lights, and our communities can save on energy costs.
