The city of Jenks, Oklahoma, has issued a request for proposals (RFP) for the city’s first installation of LED streetlights. This project encompasses both street and parking lot lighting and includes 89 decorative LED streetlight fixtures, with the possibility that an additional 25 fixtures will be installed. The project is funded by a federal grant and local matching funds and has an estimated cost of $270,000.
“The LED streetlight fixtures will replace existing high pressure sodium (HPS) streetlights,” said Loyd Bell, engineering technician for the city of Jenks. The current deployment is the city’s first installation of energy efficient streetlight fixtures. “As funds become available, the city’s goal is to replace our other streetlights and parking lot lights with LED fixtures,” said Bell. The city maintains approximately 230 roadway and pedestrian fixtures.
According to the bid document, the decorative LED luminaires will be installed on existing poles on Aquarium Drive, Pedestrian Bridge, Main Street, Main Street Pedestrian and the Oklahoma Aquarium parking lot. There is no LED manufacturer specified in the bid document, rather bidders should consider photometric and performance specifications.
Completed bids must be submitted to the city of Jenks by 2:00 p.m. on July 12, 2012. The city will evaluate separate bids for the installation of the LED fixtures. The complete bid document can be viewed at Jenks City Hall. A summary of the RFP is available here.
