TDEC OEP Webinar on LED Street Lighting Conversions for Local Jurisdictions: Working with Local Utilities to Facilitate Best Case Scenarios

LEDs are emerging as the technology of choice for street lighting, due to their decreased kW use, improved quality of light, dimmability, and minimal maintenance requirements. Furthermore, the cost of LEDs has significantly declined in recent years, with some jurisdictions realizing payback periods of less than 5 years.

On April 11, 2016, the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation’s Office of Energy Programs and Clean Energy Solutions hosted a free webinar for local jurisdictions, local cooperatives, and utility boards to learn about and discuss the challenges and solutions associated with financing an LED street lighting conversion. This webinar provided information on how to:

  • Compare the cost and quality of LED technologies;
  • Calculate projected kWh and maintenance savings; and,
  • Facilitate tariff modifications that produce economic benefits for both the local jurisdiction and the local utility provider.

This webinar also introduced the U.S. Department of Energy’s Outdoor Lighting Accelerator, which offers free technical assistance to participating jurisdictions.
