The island’s first public street lights using LED technology have been installed at  Friday Harbor Airport on Airport Circle Drive.

LED lights are energy-efficient and produce almost no heat in comparison to incandescent and fluorescent lights

These new streetlights incorporate the latest LED technology, including “Dark Skies” shading to protect airport neighbors from unwanted light. As part of the Standby Generator, Electrical Vault and Gate System Project these fixtures will illuminate an otherwise dark stretch of road near Aeronautical Services, Ernie’s Café and Westwind Aviation.

Friday Harbor Port Commissioners say they are committed to reducing the use of electricity at Port facilities through projects designed to take advantage of latest available technology.
