The Roads Traffic Division has a number of ongoing energy saving initiatives, including the up and coming LED street lighting program. This project will focus on converting approximately 2,500 streetlights in five communities to more energy efficient bulbs. The new lighting installations are expected to begin in summer 2014.
Earth hour raises awareness of how energy use contributes to climate change and helps continue the conversation about how we, as a city, can reduce our impact.
