Project Update 

Over the last six months, over 2800 streetlights throughout Haldimand County have been converted from High Pressure Sodium (HPS) and Metal Halide (MH) to LED (Light Emitting Diode). We are now in the process of performing light level testing in the newly converted areas to provide a balance between safety and comfort levels. Adjustments will be made as we proceed through this final phase of the LED conversion program.

You may notice crews from Robins Electric Inc. working throughout the evening hours starting December 1st making adjustments to the fixtures. Additionally Healy Electric, being a 3rd party auditor will be inspecting streetlights to confirm compliance.

We encourage residents to contact Danielle Fletcher, Roads Operations Project Manager at 905-318-5932 ext. 6281 or email dfletcher@haldimandcounty.on.ca with any of your lighting concerns for investigation.

We appreciate your patience during these adjustments, and are dedicated to making this program a success.
Why LED?

LED streetlights are not only dramatically brighter, but consume approximately 64% less energy than normal streetlights. The conversion equates to an estimated $218,000 in energy savings annually and an approximate $95,000 reduction in annual maintenance costs. The conversion program will reduce the County's greenhouse gas emissions by an estimated 110+ metric tonnes annually.
