By Bob Katzen

 

 The Baker Administration announced that $11.4 million is available in grants for cities and towns to convert traditional streetlights to the more efficient LED ones.

  “Converting municipally owned streetlights into energy 

efficient LEDs will help cities and towns across the Commonwealth realize thousands of dollars in annual energy savings while reducing emissions,” said Lt. Governor Karyn Polito. “LED streetlights help reduce energy usage during peak demand times, lessening the burden on our regional electric grid and reducing costs for all ratepayers.”

  Energy and Environmental Affairs Secretary Matthew Beaton added, “By converting tens of thousands of streetlights from traditional bulbs to highly efficient LEDs, the Commonwealth and our municipal partners will take another important step towards meeting our Global Warming Solutions Act emissions reduction goals.”
