Raytown, Raymore and Peculiar will share in $4 million DOE funds

Congressman Cleaver announces Raytown, Raymore and Peculiar will share in $4 million DOE funds for efficient street light project

“Smart Lights for Smart Cities” will test efficient lighting technologies in 26 cities throughout the region

Congressman Cleaver is proud to announce that Raytown, Raymore and Peculiar are among the cities that have been awarded an Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) from the U.S. Department of Energy. The Secretary of Energy announced that 20 projects nationwide have been selected for more than $60 million in funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to implement local energy efficiency and renewable energy programs to reduce energy use by American homes, vehicles, and businesses. Among the handful of successful applications nationwide, the Department of Energy selected the Mid-America Regional Council (MARC), who organized a coalition of 26 smaller cities in the Kansas City metropolitan area. The total grant was for $4,063,994 for the project.

Under the plan dubbed “Smart Lights for Smart Cities” the cities will replace inefficient street lights with high-efficiency street lights. Not only will these new street lights use significantly less energy and generate less greenhouse gases and other pollutants, but they will also save our cities money. Local governments spend as much as 25 to 50 percent of their electric utility bills on street lights. This is especially burdensome on local governments during this period of decreased revenues.

“I am proud to announce this grant to Raytown, Raymore and Peculiar. These funds were awarded because of the collaboration and cooperation, initiative and innovation exhibited in MARC’s application. The relationship MARC continues to build with the Department of Energy is paying dividends not just for the Green Impact Zone, but for communities across the Fifth District. Congratulations to MARC, Raytown, Raymore and Peculiar. This is an award which will make our streets safer, brighter and greener. These are our tax dollars coming home to put people to work literally lighting up our neighborhoods,” said Congressman Emanuel Cleaver, II.

Congressman Cleaver was on hand at the White House when Vice President Biden announced a $20 million dollar EECBG grant to MARC and the City of Kansas City last month to help retrofit homes in six neighborhoods including the Green Impact Zone.

The objective of the “Smart Lights for Smart Cities” project is to deploy different technologies from different vendors in a number of cities and use this initial deployment to transform the street-light market in the Kansas City metro area. This will be implemented through a partnership of the Smart Lights Coalition, MARC and local utilities, particularly Kansas City Power & Light (KCPL).

The project will produce immediate cost and environmental savings including total annual savings to the partner cities of $131,981, and an annual savings of almost 1.2 million KWH, and a reduction in CO2 emissions of 1,379 tons. The cities’ utility-bill savings by year six are estimated to be over $1.1 million.
