Now that the work is done, significant savings will be realized, according to the Compact’s Kevin Galligan, he said that the cumulative annual savings in the towns and Fire District will be about eight hundred thousand dollars.

The streetlight project is part of the Compact’s 2013-2015 Statewide Energy Efficiency Plan, where the installation of these types of fixtures will use about seventy percent less energy than conventional bulbs.
