Coleman Park, one of West Palm Beach’s most historic neighborhoods is now the first community in the entire state of Florida to receive new, brighter, safer high-tech LED streetlights from FPL.
The lights are being paid for by the City, and are part of Mayor Muoio’s promise to pursue environmentally friendly projects as part of the city’s Department of Sustainability.
LED lights offer a savings of approximately 60% over the older lights.
Over the past year, the city, on its own, has already paid for and installed approximately 6,000 new LED streetlights in neighborhoods where the city is responsible for the lighting. This is the first time FPL has agreed to allow a city to pay for the LED upgrades on FPL-owned lights.
