HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) - The City of Hattiesburg is changing more than 1,500 lights to LED bulbs to cut energy costs under incentives offered by Mississippi Power.

The Hattiesburg American (https://hatne.ws/1XXPXdk ) reports that the municipal airport, City Hall and Eastside Park are among the locations that will get the new bulbs.

Mississippi Power spokesman Jeff Shepard says all the outdoor lighting and some indoor lighting in city buildings and offices will be swapped out.

The city’s contractor for the change is Johnson Controls.

Shepard says that completing the program by Nov. 30 will bring the city a $20,000 check under a program approved in 2014 by the Mississippi Public Service Commission.
