Outdoor Lighting Rental Program
Paulding Putnam Electric will now only be offering LEDs for its entire Outdoor Lighting Rental Program. This change was initiated because of advancements in the LED technologies. Although the initial cost of the LED light for the co-op is significantly higher ($166 vs. $79) than the HPS lights it replaces, the energy savings is significant, too. The HPS lights used 100 watts every hour while the LED lights only use 42 watts.
In addition to the power cost savings, the manufacturer has placed a 10 year warranty on the LED light and photocell that we are currently installing. This should mean that members should have less problems with their outdoor lights. PPEC will only install the LED’s to replace fixtures requiring maintenance and all new requests for outdoor lights. The only difference members will notice is the color of the light. The HPS light had a yellow hue while the LED light is white.
