LED lights will shine on Albion Main Street at far less cost
ALBION – Albion is swapping out about 30 street lights on Main Street with energy-efficient LED lights. The new 30 to 50 watt lights will use about a tenth of the energy as the 400 watt incandescent lights while maintaining similar levels of brightness.
Village employees Brad Rouse and Jay Pahura have been working to replace the lights. They worked on a section north of the canal this morning.
Rouse had the high work, using a bucket truck from the village of Medina to remove the old bulbs and light globes. Pahura removed the transformer, starter and diffuser from the old lights. The new lights don’t need those components.
The village expects the new lights will quickly pay for themselves with the energy savings.
