The Town of Easton has begun its first LED street-light conversion project, part of a five-year plan to reduce energy consumption by 20 percent by fiscal year 2014. The initiative is funded by a Green Communities Grant and will replace 142 high-pressure sodium street lights with comparable energy-efficient LED bulbs. Dagle Electric, the town’s street-light maintenance contractor, has already installed new street lights on Center, Depot, and Elm streets. In January, the town purchased 1,450 street lights from National Grid and after replacing the bulbs with more efficient ones, estimates an annual savings of at least $11,000. For more information, contact the Department of Public Works at 508-230-0800.
