Now, the night-time view of Niagara Falls will become more magical as new LED lights will soon be installed to replace 20-year-old bulbs.The Niagara Falls Illumination Board has started a $3.1 million LED project to replace 21 Xenon lights in the Canadian and American Horseshoe Falls.

New LED Niagara project

The new LED technology will offer programmable features, robust color spectrum and twice the lighting levels. Further, the LEDs will remove dark gaps while offering reduced maintenance costs and higher energy efficiencies, according to the Niagara Parks Commission.

The commission also said that night lighting will continue via the lighting replacement process, which started in September 2016. The LEDs are being installed at locations already in use on the Canadian side of the fall.

The energy use for the traditional lights is about 126 kilowatts, which costs $33,000 a year to function. The new LED system will use 52 kilowatts, a 59% reduction in energy use as compared to the traditional lighting system.

The new lighting will become an important part of Niagara Falls, and the improvements will encourage visitation.The LED project costs US$3.1 million, and both Canada and the US have agreed to split the total cost.
