MANHATTAN, CITY OF
The City of Manhattan will use EECBG funds to convert existing incandescent lighting for traffic signals and street lights with energy efficient LED lighting. Measurable objectives include: 1. Reducing the annual electricity consumption for lighting by 220,000 kilowatts by 2012; and 2. Reducing the amount of carbon dioxide generated by its electricity consumption by 460,000 pounds by 2012. Three activities have been proposed: 1. Replace all school zone flashing assemblies with solar fixtures where surrounding topographical conditions allow, and replace all incandescent lighing in all school zone assemblies to LED lighting. 2. Replace 1,630 150-watt incandescent traffic signal lamps with 10-watt LED lamps. 3.
