Brockport sold National Grid streetlights
The New York State Public Service Commission recently approved the sale of 471 streetlights from National Grid to the village of Brockport for $230,665.
With the change in ownership, Brockport can control street lighting and install its own energy-efficient lights to lower costs to taxpayers and protect the environment.
For an average municipality, streetlights may account for up to 40% of total local government electric energy consumption. Pursuing LED conversions allows local governments to lower municipal energy expenditures while lowering overall emissions from the energy sector.
