The Christmas City of the High Plains will be bringing even more sparkle to the holiday season with added lights acquired through the “Get Lit” campaign.
The “Get Lit” campaign is an initiative to raise money for new programmable, color-changing LED light strands from Inception Lighting. Once installed, they will become a year-long feature along the top of the buildings lining Downtown WaKeeney.
LED lighting is changing the game in industrial decorative lighting by providing three additional benefits for our city.
Maximum aesthetic appeal
The light strand’s mechanics are designed to be discretely attached to the architecture of the buildings so the brilliance of the lights is the only operational part seen, day or night. The multi-colored lights are easily programmable so the city can choose different combinations throughout the year for any celebration. Imagine red, white and blue on July 4thand purple and gold on game days!
Simple to install, maintain, and operate
The LED strips come in three lengths to allow for custom light placement. This means there will never be an appearance of a missing light or a need to cut one of the strips.If a light goes out, the product has a detachable lid that will enable easy replacement of only the old lights and not the entire fixture, unlike similar products. Check out this video from Inception Lighting to find out more about the installation process.
Long-lasting brilliance and savings
Because LEDs are housed in plastic, rather than metal, they emit significantly less heat compared to all other sources of light. This feature also makes them less expensive to install and operate. And, the entire system isguaranteed to last for up to ten years! Altogether, we’re expecting the cost savings will be in the thousands of dollars, with an estimated yearly utility bill of only $300!
