CLEARWATER – In an effort to save energy, Clearwater – with help from Duke Energy – is converting its streetlights to LED.

The project is now underway and will last for 15 months, where Duke Energy contractors will replace all of the city’s 11,290 existing streetlights from standard incandescent bulbs to Light Emitting Diode – LED – that produce the same amount of light.

When the project is complete, the city’s entire street lighting network will be converted to smarter technology at no additional cost to the city.

The project begins in the Countryside area and crews will work south and west until the project is complete. There will be minimal impact to residents throughout the conversion process, as all the work will be done in the roadways. Residents will see uniformed Duke Energy contractors wearing reflective vests and badges that identify themselves as working with Duke Energy.

“I’m pleased that with Duke Energy, we’re able to convert all of the city’s streetlights to LED,” said Paul Bertels, traffic operations manager. “This will enhance safety and lend to a more aesthetically pleasing look along Clearwater’s streets and roadways.”
