Houston Lighting and Electrical Contractor Sheds Light on Westpark Tollway Underpasses

HOUSTON, TX, Feb 11, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Highlights Electrical, an electrical contracting company, has installed energy efficient LED lighting at two Westpark Tollway underpasses. The project was completed under contract with the Westchase District. New clean, bright lights gleam under the Westpark Tollway, at Briarpark and Wilcrest. Completed in February, the new outdoor LED lighting creates a safer environment for pedestrians and bikers.

Located adjacent to METRO bus stops, the LED lighting systems for the underpasses were also designed to make bus riders feel more comfortable when waiting for their respective bus. Irma Sanchez, vice president of projects for Westchase District, also suggested that the new outdoor LED lighting will "make it more convenient for bus riders to get to and from the stops and their destinations." Enhancing the entry points into the Westchase District, the outdoor LED lighting replaced the low-pressure sodium fixtures that illuminated the underpasses for years. The LED lighting system was designed and installed by Houston's own electrical contracting company, Highlights Electrical. This LED lighting brightens up two critical toll way underpasses, which will hopefully encourage "people to get out of their cars and enjoy more walking and bicycling," said Sanchez. Moreover, Sanchez reports that she is "pleased" with the new energy efficient lighting.

Highlights Electrical, Houston's premier lighting and electrical contractor, has been installing lighting systems since 1986. With recent developments in LED lighting technology, pricing and energy costs have been driven down. Companies that would like to take advantage of this emerging LED lighting technology can count on Highlights for guidance in selecting the right light fixtures for their application.

Highlights can also assist companies with the various rebate programs, such as the one offered by CenterPoint Energy, that are now available for LED lighting upgrades. Take advantage of lower energy costs and reduced maintenance by letting Houston's best electrical contracting company, Highlights Electrical, design and install a new LED lighting system for your company.
