At the Avondale Council meeting last night (Feb. 4) Mayor Weise proclaimed Feb 17-23 as Professional Engineers Week in Avondale.
We're fortunate to have a team of Engineering professional dedicated to Making Lives Better!
At the Avondale Council meeting last night (Jan. 22) Arizona Public Service (APS) presented the City Council with a check in the amount of $71,423.35, which represents the total amount of the rebate the city received for APS energy savings to the city’s LED conversion.
This rebate comes as a result of the citywide streetlight modernization and conversion of 7,944 High Pressure Sodium street lights to energy efficient LED fixtures. The project, completed in October 2018 by Ameresco in conjunction with city staff, reduces the city’s energy consumption by over 3 million kWh annually, and is estimated to net taxpayers $2,143,614 in energy savings over 20 years.
