AMHERST – LED Roadway Lighting has announced it has received a contract to supply 8,000 LED street lights to the Dominican Republic.

Corporatcion Dominicana de Empresas Electricas Estatales, the Dominican Republic’s state power holding company, began converting its public lighting to LED technology in July.

Installation is currently underway on major avenues and streets in Santo Domingo and other major urban centres.

The LED lights are expected to provide energy savings of more than 50 per cent when compared to existing high-pressure sodium lights. The LED lights are expected to last 20 years, compared to four years for traditional lamps.

    Just wondering if they could use a couple of dozen installers down in the Dominican from the Amherst area. I know quite a few willing to learn the art of pole climbing. Will be available for the months of January, February and March only.
