The City of Tulsa successfully collaborated with luminaire manufacturer, Amerlux, and LED manufacturer, Bridgelux, to install LED street lighting from Amerlux as part of the restoration of Tulsa’s historic Brady district. About 200 Amerlux outdoor luminaires based on Bridgelux LED arrays are planned to illuminate the walkways around the new Driller Stadium and park. Sixty-four of the street lights were installed in 2011 with the remaining street lights slated for installation this year. The new LED lighting is expected to save the City of Tulsa thousands of dollars in reduced energy and maintenance costs, compared to the conventional High Intensity Discharge (HID) streetlights used in other areas of the city.
“The collaboration between the City and its lighting manufacturer and supplier delivered a flexible, energy- and cost-efficient solution that significantly improved the quality and longevity of Tulsa’s outdoor lighting,” said Paul Strizek, planning and contracts manager for the City of Tulsa. “Together we delivered on the City’s commitment to reduce our energy use, increase sustainability and offer our citizens a better quality of light.”
