The City of Kinston proposes to use $499,500 of Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant funding to replace 740 high-pressure sodium and mercury streetlights with 740 light-emitting diode streetlights. The city operates and maintains a total of 2,074 streetlights, so this project represents over a third of their total lights. By replacing these lights, the City's savings per year for kilowatt hours (kWh) is approximately 888,888 kWh or $200,000 per year with the street lights.
