Three Nova Scotia municipalities are seeking bids for the purchase, installation and maintenance of LED streetlights. The participating communities are the Municipality of the District of Digby (MODD), the town of Digby, and the village of Lawrencetown. The communities are responding to a 2011 mandate by the Nova Scotia provincial government for greater energy efficiency in streetlighting.
According to the bid document, the three communities will replace 1,205 existing streetlights with LED streetlights. The majority of the existing streetlights are high pressure sodium (HPS) with a select few metal halide fixtures. All of the existing streetlights are cobrahead style. The MODD plans to install 859 LED fixtures, the town of Digby plans to install 253 LED fixtures, and the village of Lawrencetown plans to install 93 LED fixtures. These numbers represent 100% of the municipalities’ streetlight inventory. Responses to the RFP should also include a plan for maintenance.
Product specifications for the proposed LED streetlights include LM-79 and LM-80 reports, correlated color temperature of 4,000K – 5,000K, and a color rendering index of 65. Bidders may be asked to supply on LED streetlight fixture as a sample for evaluation.
Complete bids must be submitted to the Municipality of the District of Digby by Friday, April 11, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. local time. The complete bid document can be found here.
