WAILUKU, Maui, Hawai`i – Mayor Alan Arakawa announced today that the County of Maui is testing energy-efficient, “smart” LED (Light-Emitting Diode) streetlights on Wili Pa Loop, in Wailuku, and invited the public to participate in a demonstration on Thursday, May 16. The event will begin with a short presentation at 7:15 p.m. at the Wailuku Post Office. A walking tour of the streetlights on Wili Pa Loop will follow the presentation; Wili Pa Loop is about 0.4 miles in length and involves slight uphill walking.

The first four streetlights along Wili Pa Loop, starting at the Eha Street intersection, are being dimmed every night from 10 p.m. to sunrise. The first of its kind in Hawaii and one of the most advanced of its kind in the U.S., the testing process is examining the use of wireless remote controls to dim the streetlights late at night to save energy.
