Going Green with Gentry LED


Post Falls City Hall Goes Green


In a progressive move to conserve energy and become a more environmentally friendly entity, the City of Post Falls has made the move to LED lighting.  The city has replaced 73 street/parking lot lamps from a 175W Metal Halide lamp, to a 30 watt LED lamp that has five times the life expectancy of the previous light.  This move will save the outdoor lights over $3,000 a year in utility costs.  They have also retrofit the basement with LED linear tubes, and were able to eliminate 92 linear tubes and save over 60% on energy costs every year.  All of the LED lamps used in this retrofit are 100% recyclable and have a expected life span of 12-15 years!!  So, congratulations to the city of Post Falls, Idaho for making the move to help the city become a more sustainable entity.
