COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. - Streetlights that were turned off along major roadway corridors to assist with saving money have now been turned on in preparation for the end of Daylight Savings Time.
The Transportation Engineering Department of the Growth Management Division realized a savings of approximately $130,000 in electrical energy costs in 2009 when streetlights along several county corridors were turned off during a portion of Daylight Savings Time and similar savings were expected to be realized this year.
During this period, there was no increase in traffic related incidents nor was there an increase in electrical component failures after the streetlights were restored to a normal operational configuration. Therefore the cost reducing measure was done again this year.
Daylight Savings Time is scheduled to end on Nov. 7 at 2 a.m.
