Town Street Lighting Campaigns

Street lighting is one of a town’s more expensive utility bills. Most cities and towns currently use old, inefficient light fixtures with drop-down lens fixtures that spill and waste light to the sides and upward to the sky. Through a community-wide streetlight initiative, towns can save money, reduce energy use, and cut down on night time light pollution. For more information contact SERG or download and review the comprehensive “Guide to Improving Efficiency in Municipal Street and Public Space Lighting” created by Efficiency Vermont.
