The City Of Airdrie is starting a big project as of May 23.
FortisAlberta will be busy in the city as they tackle the conversion of 3,322 street lights from HPS to LED technology.
Natasha Russel, Public Relations for FortisAlberta said there are a variety of benefits from converting existing lights.
"The switch also results in lower cost for customers and the other thing is we use a warmer light so there is less blue light exposure."
Switching to LED lights has a variety of benefits including energy consumption, less light pollution and the lights will also produce a white flow instead of yellow.
The conversion of these lights is just another thing the City of Airdrie is doing to reduce its carbon footprint and promote green energy projects.
"I think this day and age everyone wants to do what they can to help the environment and this, of course, is one of the ways we can do it."
Rough estimates show that the city will save $5.71 per light bulb that is converted.
The project will begin May 23rd and is expected to go until July 9th.
