LED (Light Emitting Diode)

Sun Prairie Utilities has partnered with the City of Sun Prairie to install LED streetlights with the West Main street re-construction. There are 66 LED streetlights lighting the Main Street corridor. The Sun Prairie Area School District is also utilizing LED lighting for the new schools as they are built. Creekside Elementary has installed LED parking lights and the two new schools under construction  will utilize LED's as well. SPU has also installed LED streetlights on N. Bird Street between Windsor St and Main St. SPU will continue to replace lights in need of repair with LED's, and as streets are reconstructed by the City LED's will be installed as a part of that reconstruction.

LED lights are more durable than the old standard incandescent bulbs, and LED’s use about 1/3 the energy of incandescent bulbs. The life expectancy of an LED is projected to be 2 to 3 times longer as well. All of these benefits will mean fewer maintenance costs required over the life of the light, and the operating costs will be significantly lower than the old standard lights.
