Some new light will soon be shed on The Defiance County Airport. The airport will soon be getting some new lights. The only question is whether traditional incandescent bulbs or more modern and current technology will be chosen in the form of high-tech LED lighting.
The Bryan Times reports that airport officials say while incandescent bulbs are less expensive to install, maintenance costs are much higher over the long run. LED’s last much longer. The county engineer’s
estimate was $259,000 for incandescent bulbs and $283,000 for LEDs.
A Federal Aviation Administration grant which will fund 90% of the project is being sought.
