The Township of Lyon, Michigan, has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the purchase and installation of 27 decorative LED streetlights.
This project is part of the Downtown Development Authority’s (DDA) larger initiative to grow and revitalize the historic downtown corridor. Previous deployments and the significant savings as a result of energy efficient LED streetlights encouraged city officials to pursue the current installation. “Our earlier installation of LED streetlights has resulted in about a 40% reduction in energy consumption compared to traditional roadway fixtures,” said Michelle Aniol, DDA Administrator and Economic Development Coordinator for Lyon Township. The township-owned streetlights are metered, thus providing officials with accurate data on energy consumption. Existing roadway streetlights are metal halide decorative streetlights. The total number of streetlights in the DDA area is about 150.
According to the bid document, bidders are asked to submit proposals for LED retrofit using existing acorn globes, as well as an alternate proposal for a full LED replacement. The 27 existing streetlights targeted for replacement are decorative, post top metal halide fixtures. The bid component for the full replacement specifies the Beacon Products 80 watt Mediterranean LED luminaire.
Questions regarding the RFP may be submitted to township engineer, Nikki Jeffries (firstname.lastname@example.org) until June 15, 2012. Complete bids must be submitted to Lyon Township by 10:00 a.m., June 20, 2102. A copy of the bid package can be requested in writing from the township engineer or viewed here on the Michigan Inter-Governmental Trade Network.
