City of Poughkeepsie

Energy Performance Contract

Wendel was retained by the City of Poughkeepsie to undertake city-wide energy efficiency improvements. Split into two phases, the scope of the first phase included the installation of newer, more accurate water meters. The upgraded meters are equipped with real time meter reading and leak detection capabilities, all integrated into the city’s billing system. The second phase entails the city-wide retrofit of street lighting and traffic signals with LED technology. Over 3,000 light fixtures made up mostly of high pressure sodium, metal halide and mercury vapor will be converted, while the remaining incandescent traffic signals from the approximate 94 intersections will also be converted to LED, with each intersection being provided metered services.
