$4M System to Light Up Niagara Falls

The bi-national Niagara Falls Illumination Board has agreed to invest $4 million to upgrade the nightly lighting system, this time using state-of-the-art LED systems that have a 25-year life cycle, have less maintenance requirements than the current lights and use 82 percent less power than the zeon lights being used on the falls. Work will begin this spring and the new system should be in place by mid-fall, in time for the annual Niagara Falls (Ont.) Winter Festival of Lights that begins in November and also serve as a backdrop for Canada’s 150th anniversary celebration next year. New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation has invested $64 million in various upgrades and should help attract more visitors. http://www.bizjournals.com/buffalo/news/2016/02/26/4m-system-to-light-up-niagara-falls.html
