WAPA Evaluating LED Street Lights

The Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority is seeking the public’s help in evaluating new, energy efficient street lights.

WAPA, through a grant from the Virgin Islands Energy Office and the American Recovery and Reinvestment ACT, is proposing to replace 1,200 high pressure sodium lights with more efficient light emitting diode street lights.

The Authority has acquired five LED units from different manufactures. A sample LED fixture from each manufacturer has been installed in the Sunny Isle area, along Pepper Tree Road from the WAPA business office heading north to the Innovative Communications main office building.

WAPA is asking for the public’s feedback in the visibility and light output provided by each LED. The poles with LED fixtures have been numbered one through five. People passing through the area are asked to note the quality of the lighting and send their comments to R. Arthur Burton at arthur.burton@viwapa.vi or call 773-2250 extension 3106 or 774-3552 extension 2050.
