LED Lighting Upgrades in Parks

The City of Hoboken received a Sustainable Jersey Small Grant funded by The Gardinier Environmental Fund to replace all lighting in Church Square Park with energy efficient LED fixtures. Church Square Park is one of the most heavily utilized parks in the community and requires dusk to dawn lighting to ensure the safety of park goers. LED fixtures are superior to traditional fixtures in efficiency, lifespan, durability, and

maintenance. They have an estimated 100,000 hour life span (lasting four times longer than traditional fixtures), require no warm-up, have no toxic chemicals, and have virtually no maintenance expenses. While this project will reduce energy consumption and costs for municipal lighting, the City hopes to lead by example to catalyze residential and commercial LED lighting upgrades and demonstrating the value and cost savings in public investments in lighting upgrades.

Energy Efficiency Projects in City Buildings

The City of Hoboken installed energy efficient equipment at 12 municipal buildings in 2018. By using incentives from New Jersey’s Clean Energy Program, the City saved more than $200,000 on the capital costs of energy efficiency upgrades and is saving more than $100,000 on energy costs each year following installation, providing a return on investment of less than 2 years.

Commercial Energy Efficiency

The City of Hoboken and Hoboken Business Alliance encourage businesses to participate in the Direct Install program offered by the New Jersey Clean Energy Program. The program provides businesses with hands-on assistance to help cut energy bills and save money on their bottom line, while also helping to create a cleaner, healthier community.  

Direct Install will pay for 70% of the cost energy savings upgrades to a commercial building and can be completed in as little as 90 days. It begins with an initial FREE, no-obligation energy assessment of the building. Once completed, the payback period on the initial investment can be as short as one year, while the energy and cost savings can last up to 15 years.
