The City of Cayce is pleased to announce that the City has received a $5,000 energy efficiency grant from the South Carolina Office of Regulatory Staff, Energy Office to purchase new LED lights for Cayce’s Municipal Complex and Utility Compound.
With the grant, the City of Cayce will purchase 66 LED lights in a variety of wattages to use at City Hall. The new LED lights will replace current exterior metal halide bulbs, which are known to be inefficient. The City maintains dozens of exterior lighting fixtures across the Municipal Complex and the Utility Compound to provide sufficient lighting for vehicle and pedestrian navigation, safety, and aesthetics.
With the new LEDs, the City expects to receive both energy savings as well as cost savings. Quality LED light bulbs last longer, are more durable, and offer comparable or better light quality than other types of lighting. The LEDs will be purchased and installed in the next couple months. This grant is made possible by the United States Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE).
