1.1 Purpose and Background of Report
This Technical Report was developed by Omnibus Industries (OI) for the City of Thorold in response to their Request for Proposal (RFP) for the replacement of High-Pressure Sodium Vapour Lamps (HPSV) street lights on Main and Ferry Street. The following material will describe the benefits of Light-Emitting Diode (LED) lighting compared to the current HPSV lighting used by many municipalities. Also this report evaluates the benefits LED lighting technology can provide for the City of Thorold as a possible energy efficient light source.
The City of Thorold is in need of 30 HPSV street lights to be replaced on Main and Ferry St. The street lights are outdated and are near the end of their lifetime. The current condition of the lights pose danger to motorist and pedestrians because of the lack of lighting the old HPSV provide to the two streets. Fast action is required to eliminate the hazardous road conditions and provide the City of Thorold with the most effective source of street lighting.
The location of current HPSV street lights to be replaced on Ferry and Main St are shown in Figure 1. The yellow dots represent the position of the HPSV lights. Figure 2 displays the average distance between the current street lights shown in Figure 1.
