New York State LED Streetlight Program

by | Nov 17, 2021 | 0 comments |

All streetlights in the town of New Paltz, New York have been replaced by LED lights! The New York Power Authority has begun an energy saving program with a goal of replacing at least 500,000 street lights with LEDs throughout the state by 2025. This program will coincide with additional New York state efforts surrounding their Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act. Part of that initiative is to lower carbon emissions and decrease the amount of electricity used. 
Programs like this ensure the safety of communities and lower their greenhouse gas emissions. Along with these new streetlight fixtures, smart lighting controls will be installed that will lower the amount of lighting outages and decrease maintenance costs. The new street lights are reported to be up to 65% more effective than their traditional counterparts.  
Other goals that are being implemented by New York are to have a zero-emissions electricity sector by 2040 and, by 2030, have 70% renewable energy generation. New York is investing a lot into renewable energy. The LED streetlights project is estimated to be around $117,000. The state is also putting $21 billion into upwards of 90 different projects geared towards renewable energy that includes reducing building emissions, solar energy and clean transportation.
