About the Project
In 2016 the Municipality of Central Elgin contracted ERTH Infrastructure as part of their Port Stanley downtown reconstruction and pier redevelopment project. The objective of the project was to increase tourism and boost local business by revitalizing the downtown core and adding to the small beach town’s attractions with a new pier walkway. ERTH’s contribution to the multi-year project consisted of burying hydro and installing energy efficient LED street lighting in the downtown core and pier walkway.
Street lighting was a key feature in the beautification of both the downtown and waterfront pier areas. By installing LED street lighting, the municipality captured significant energy savings, while reducing their carbon footprint.
The project immediately increased tourism potential for Port Stanley, which greatly supports the community and local economy.
