The city of Fremont, California, has issued a request for proposals (RFP) for the purchase and installation of cobrahead-style LED streetlights.
The project is funded by funds remaining from the city’s original Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) award which is part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The EECBG grant is locally administered by the California Energy Commission. The upcoming project is a continuation of the city of Fremont’s move to replace existing streetlight fixtures with energy efficient LED streetlights.
“This is our third installation of LED streetlights on our city streets. Our previous projects included new streetlights as well as retrofits,” said Jeanne Suyeishi, project manager for the city of Fremont. The first installation included nearly three hundred cobrahead LED streetlights on Stevenson Boulevard. The second installation included twenty-five new LED streetlights manufactured by GE Lighting of Cleveland, Ohio, and 53 replacement fixtures on Osgood Road.
“The current project on Paseo Padre Parkway will total 401 LED streetlight fixtures which will replace existing high pressure sodium fixtures,” said Suyeishi. No manufacturer is specified in the bid document. The LED streetlights identified in the bid include 70 watt, 100 watt, 150 watt, 200 watt, and 250 watt equivalent fixtures. The total project value is estimated to be about $250,000.
Complete bids must be submitted to the city of Fremont by Tuesday, April 10, 2012, at 2:00 p.m. Bid documents and plans can be downloaded here.
