MoneySaver™ Program – How it Works

  1. The municipality installs residential LED luminaires – we re-purpose the displaced HPS luminaires.
  1. We convert the displaced HPS luminaires into HPS MoneySavers™ by adding wattage reduction technology and new components.
  1. The municipality replaces existing high – wattage HPS luminaires with HPS MoneySavers™
  1. After 5 years, the municipality replaces the HPS MoneySavers™ with efficient 15-year-life LEDs at half today’s price.
  1. We take back the HPS MoneySavers™ – no recycling cost or hassle.

Savings over 20 Years (5 years for MoneySavers™ and 15 years for LEDs)

  • For an estimated 6,000 high-wattage lights, it means savings of $12,800,000* over 20 years – an average of $640,000 per year
*Here’s the math

5,000 250W replacement lights x $380
+ 1,000 400W replacement lights x $508
+ 5,000 250W replacement lights x $1,627
+ 1,000 400W replacement lights x $2,283
= $12,826,000 for 20 years
= $641,000 per year
