09/20/2012 ~ Keys Energy Services (KEYS) and the Key West Department of Transportation are pleased to announce that a move toward greener lighting at the City Garage/ Park N’ Ride has resulted in energy savings.

By replacing a portion of the standard fixtures in the parking garage with LED lighting, electricity use was reduced by nearly 43,000 kilowatts* over six months. That translates into a savings of nearly $6,000 over six months.

Key West’s Pedestrian Action Committee members, serving as a lighting task force assisted the City and KEYS in evaluating the vendors and bids for the project.

The second energy saving phase of installations will begin in the new fiscal year.
