The city of Cottonwood Heights, Utah, seeks bidders for a LED streetlight installation project.
Using federal funds totaling $147,800, the city plans to install approximately twenty one new energy efficient LED streetlights in the Cottonwood Heights commercial district and arterial roadways. The planned construction includes LED streetlight fixtures as well as poles and electrical wiring. The city was awarded funds through the US Department of Energy’s Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) program, however engineer’s estimates value the project at between $226,500 and $277,500.
“We are interested in getting the best price for our LED streetlight fixtures, and we are currently testing two fixtures throughout the city,” said Mike Allen, public works director for the city of Cottonwood Heights. Fixtures currently in pilot installations have been supplied by Holophane and Mountain States Lighting. City officials anticipate saving energy as well as maintenance cost reductions as a result of the longer life of LED streetlights. Currently the city pays approximately $140,000 per year for streetlighting.
The scope of work for the proposed installation includes furnishing all labor, tools, materials, equipment, transportation and services required for the construction of the streetlight project.
