Back in February, the Board of Selectmen voted to approve a proposal from United Illuminating to convert streetlights along the state roads of Woodbridge from older, less-efficient bulbs to environmentally friendly LED lighting. These light-emitting diode (LED) fixtures yield a bright, crisp light and are up to 40 percent more efficient than the high-pressure sodium fixtures they replace.
This conversion project, which will be at no cost to the Town, is now underway along our roads and is expected to conclude in July. When completed, it will conserve energy while saving taxpayers by reducing energy costs for the Town by an estimated $17,522 annually. It also represents a reduction in our Town’s contribution to global warming and demonstrates our ongoing commitment to the environment and sustainability.
