New parking garage lights will cut down on costs for the city

The project entails the removal and replacement is of approximately 255 lights fixtures at the garage at 100 Washington Ave.

The City of Bremerton, in partnership with Puget Sound Energy, hopes to recoup the costs of installing new energy efficient lights at its Harborside parking facility in a little under four years.

The project entails the removal and replacement is of approximately 255 lights fixtures at the garage at 100 Washington Ave.

The $75,770 project is being funded, in part, with a 33,509 grant from Puget Sound Energy. The utility estimates that the upgrade will provide a monthly Maintenance and Operations savings of $1,100 per month. The city’s $42,261.22 contribution to the project costs will come from its parking system budget.

Officials note that the total annual energy savings is estimated to be 163,067 kilowatt hours per year at $0.07/kwh. The energy savings are expected to be $11,414.72, with a projected pay back of 3.7 years.

At that time it was evident that the lighting at the Harborside parking facility would be the next prime candidate for similar energy efficiency and conservation upgrades to the lighting fixtures. City electronics staff also identified actions that could be taken to greatly reduce energy consumption at the facility.
