JEA Installing Energy Efficient LED Streetlights Throughout Jacksonville

The LED streetlights are more expensive than the current high-pressure sodium ones used now but are brighter, designed to last longer and promise an ultimate saving of at least $1 million annually in electricity costs to the city once all are installed. The average JEA customer won’t see any change in their electric bill because of the switch to LED. By the numbers, here’s an overview of JEA’s street light replacement project: 3/21 The Florida Times-Union
• About 130,000 — Number of JEA street lights in the city of Jacksonville
• $210 — Cost for one 40-watt Cobra Head LED street light which is equivalent in brightness to a 70-watt high pressure sodium light
• At least 100,000 hours — Average life span of LED streetlight.

    They changed the ones on our street today (3/3/17), and the increase in brightness is welcome. Amazing how much brighter they are. Thank you JEA.
