LED Streetlights http://www.cheshirect.org/news/led-streetlights/ 2016-04-12T13:43:38 Arnett Talbot http://www.cheshirect.org/news/led-streetlights/ LED STREETLIGHT PROJECT  

  

     Installation of nearly 1,770 LED streetlights and floodlights will begin the week of April 18, 2016.  Part of a new energy efficiency initiative, the full project installation will result in at least $170,000 in annual energy and maintenance savings for the Town, will reduce energy usage by two-thirds compared to existing streetlights, and will provide citizens with clearer lighting conditions to improve visibility and safety.  The existing streetlights will be removed and replaced with new, more energy efficient LED lights.  The new LED fixtures will provide the appropriate amount of lighting for locations across the town and will focus light directly downward on the sidewalks and roadway.  The fixtures have a ten-year product warranty, but are anticipated to have a much longer life. The project is expected to be completed in July 2016.

      The $1.2M project is expected to be eligible for approximately $190,000 in Eversource energy efficiency incentive funds to help offset project costs.  The Town has already brought LED technology to some of our public buildings and grounds with great success.
