years ago, Duke Energy and the town of Knightdale, began replacing light fixtures that were more than 20 years old with LEDs.
Now as part of Phase II of the upgrade program, the goal is to replace these many town street lights.
Duke Energy's estimate of the cost of the LED conversion. It will charge the town once the job is complete.
The energy savings per year the town estimates the project will bring about once all the lights are switched, meaning the cost of the project will be paid off in roughly three years.
