The new lights will reap 50 to 80 percent in energy savings, provide better light and do away with the old fixtures' buzzing noise and warm-up time.

The Wadena-Deer Creek School District is in the midst of replacing inefficient lighting in the school district. Energy-efficient fluorescent lighting is replacing out-dated, inefficient lighting in the high school commons, high school gymnasiums, as well as the elementary and Memorial Auditorium gymnasiums this summer.


The lighting update is projected to not only dramatically improve the gyms' lighting, but is expected to cut the lighting's power consumption considerably.
