The State Public Service Commission Thursday adopted guidelines to help municipalities such as the Village of Homer upgrade street lights to LEDs.
The action establishes how National Grid can also sell street lighting assets to the Village in the interest of lowering operating costs.
The village hopes to participate in such a program.
Below is the PSC statement on the Street Light program:
Street Lighting: The Commission adopted a number of provisions that will facilitate the upgrading of street lights throughout National Grid’s upstate service territory to energy efficient light emitting diodes (LEDs). For municipalities that opt into the program, the company will replace company-owned failed roadway luminaires with LED luminaires. The company will also sell its street lighting assets to municipalities who wish to purchase them at the lowest price possible.
