Local News

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The city of Albuquerque has shared drone videos that show what a difference new lighting is making at community centers.

The videos show the upgraded lighting at North Domingo Baca and Manzano Mesa Multigenerational Centers. The city says they plan to eventually replace the lighting at all of their community centers and facilities. They say it’ll cut costs, improve safety and make Albuquerque greener.

“Light distribution itself helps with more visibility, the color renderings for the LED provides more color visibility on public, so they can see the color of the car, all of these aspects add up to help the public be more safe and more secure,” said City of Albuquerque Energy Specialist Saif Ismail.

The next community center they’re planning to upgrade is Barelas Community.
