City of Dublin OH : Dublin Honored for Energy Efficiency Efforts
AEP Ohio is honoring the City of Dublin with a Certificate of Recognition for energy efficiency effortsafter a series of improvements completed in 2016. The City converted its streetlights to LED (Light Emitting Diode) from older technologies (High-Pressure Sodium and Mercury Vapor). AEP Ohio recognized the City for undertaking these projects, which helped save 713,734 kilowatt-hours of electricity annually.
An additional benefit of the project is the reduction in carbon dioxide production by 546.8 tons each year. According to AEP Ohio, that is the environmental impact equivalent of the following:
keeping 115 cars off the road each year eliminating the total carbon dioxide production of 58 single family homes annually; or growing 14,162 tree seedlings for 10 years.
Dublin's Engineering Division implemented the improvements. The City received a rebate of $45,027.41 under the program.

Applying smart surface techniques throughout a city could even the playing field and create greater equity while greatly improving health and quality of life for low-income residents.Smart surfaces can have an effect on surrounding areas and not just the city that integrates them, the report says. Reducing urban heat and smog does not just happen within a city's borders, so entire regions could benefit from a city investing in smart surfaces.
