Illuminating Neighbourhoods - A City of Edmonton and EPCOR Technologies Pilot Project in LED Implementation

Following dramatic strides in light emitting diode (LED) lighting technology since the early 2000s, the City of Edmonton (COE) embarked on a feasibility study in 2009 to investigate the potential to replace existing High Intensity Discharge (HID) streetlight luminaires with more efficient LED streetlight luminaires. As this technology was new and broadly unproven in municipal markets, it was prudent for the COE to identify all risks associated with the technology to ensure successful implementation, complemented with positive feedback from the public; in fact, the public's support for prior traffic signal LED technology was one of the main drivers to proceed with the LED streetlighting pilot. The objective of this paper is to illustrate the process involved from the identification of the most appropriate LED technology through to the implementation and commissioning of over 12,000 LED streetlight luminaires throughout the City.
