The town of Kennebunk, Maine, is in the process of launching a pilot program to study the potential to replace or retrofit the town’s existing streetlights with LED streetlight fixtures. Included in the project are both cobrahead and decorative streetlights. The project is scheduled to be implemented in two phases. The first phase is a pilot and testing phase with the the goal of replacing approximately 1,000 streetlights, over a one year period, with energy efficient LED streetlights.
According to the bid document, the testing, or pilot, phase will require the vendor to retrofit three cobrahead high pressure sodium (HPS) streetlights with LED streetlights within three ranges of correlated color temperature. Further, the vendor will install three scalloped hood fixtures with LED fixtures within three color spectra, as well as three acorn style LED streetlights. In the implementation phase, the vendor will assist energy provider, Kennebunk Light and Power (KLPD) with selection of streetlight fixtures and installation.
Bidders must submit a summary of LED experience in production capabilities, testing, lists of customers, and three references. All fixtures submitted with the bid must meet made in the USA requirements.
Complete bids must be submitted to the town of Kennebunk by Friday, June 21, 2013. The bid document can be found here.
