Streets in the City of Dauphin are going to be lit with LED lights that are longer-lasting, provide better lighting, and use less energy than the high pressure sodium lights currently there.
It's part of Manitoba Hydro's province-wide Power Smart LED Roadway Lighting Conversion Program.
Mayor Eric Irwin says this is happening at zero cost to the city.
"Hydro's paying the bill and we get $20,000 off our bill next year because they use less electricity."
The old-style high pressure sodium lights have a life expectancy of up to five years. The new LED lights can last up to 20.
Dauphin has about 1,000 street lights.
