The parking lot lights at Crook County High School.

The parking lot lights at Crook County High School were replaced in mid-November from the old high-pressure sodium vapor type to new LED lights. LED lights use between 40% and 75% less energy, emit a daylight color that provides excellent visibility and creates a safer driving atmosphere at night, have less side lighting which creates less light pollution, and has a lifespan of 10-15 years. The overall cost of the project was $4,447, but through various energy incentives the District ended up with zero net cost to complete this project. The reduction in energy use will create ongoing savings for the district and the upgraded lighting will be beneficial to students, staff, and guests who use the parking lot after dark.
