Mayor Kirk Caldwell will hold a news conference Wednesday night to announce the installation of the new energy-efficient streetlights paid for with federal funds.
The city says the new lights feature Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology are expected to use at least 40 percent less energy while at the same time improving the quality of light on the roadway for better visibility and enhanced safety.
The LED lights will be installed first at Kahala Park on the corner of Moa Street and Pahoa Avenue.
The city will install an additional 37 lights Thursday in Manoa, an additional 52 in Nuuanu on June 18; and 48 more in Mililani Mauka on June 19.
Crews will install the lights from 8:30 a.m. To 2:30 p.m. weekdays to avoid rush hour traffic.
The pilot project is funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy.
The total cost to install the lights at the four locations is $79,000.
