Harrisburg moving forward with replacing street lights

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – City Council has chosen The Efficiency Network of Pittsburgh to replace more than 4,500 street lights.

Mayor Eric Papenfuse says the city spends about $1 million annually to light up the city, but the LED street lights will save the city nearly $500,000 per year.

Patrick Regan is the director of government programs for TEN. He says they stand behind their product and the city has no risk.

“This is a legal guarantee,” Regan said. “If the savings does not materialize after the project is completed, TEN is required to make up the shortfall to the city.”

Regan says they hope to begin the project in June and complete the work by February 2016.
