Ruekert & Mielke, Inc. (R/M) provided the City of Sheboygan with electrical engineering services to layout and design an LED lighting system to serve their new SouthPointe Enterprise Campus. In total, 53 energy efficient LED fixtures, each mounted on 30-foot aluminum poles, are being implemented as part of this project. R/M created technical specifications, drawings, and details covering the electrical wiring systems to power and control the lighting system, as well as covering the installation of the of the poles, pole bases, and light fixtures.
The LED light fixtures selected by the City and being implemented by this project will provide a modern look to match the desired aesthetics for this important new development. By going with an LED-based lighting system, the City will benefit through reduced energy consumption, low maintenance, and long-life fixtures. The City will experience on-going energy savings of over 50% of what a traditional HPS or MH lighting system would have produced.
R/M has also recently participated in LED street lighting system projects for the City of Greenfield, Village of Sussex, City of Oconomowoc, and Village of Dousman.
