The town of Kingsville, Ontario, Canada has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for a large-scale upgrade to its streetlighting system. The town is proposing to replace over one thousand existing high pressure sodium (HPS) streetlights with LED streetlights, and over one hundred decorative streetlights with LED streetlights.
According to the bid document, town officials have specified LED Roadway as the preferred streetlight for the HPS cobrahead fixtures, and King Luminaire for the decorative fixtures.
The HPS streetlights scheduled for replacement include 70 watt, 100 watt, 150 watt, 200 watt, and 250 watt fixtures. The decorative streetlights scheduled for replacement include 100 watt and 150 watt decorative fixtures. The LED streetlights specified by the bid document will reduce energy consumption by approximately fifty percent. The town currently spends about $CDN 50,000 on streetlight maintenance. This sum is expected to be reduced based on data which shows that LED streetlights require less frequent maintenance and have a longer life than other high intensity discharge lamps. The streetlight inventory of Kingsville has been calculated as 1,221 HPS cobrahead streetlights and 124 decorative streetlights.
Complete bids must be submitted to the town of Kingsville, Ontario, by Monday, January 30, 2014 at 12:00 p.m. EST. Questions and requests for clarification may be submitted via email to G.A. Plancke until Thursday, January 23, 2014 at 4:00 p.m. EST. The bid document can be foundhere.
