LED Streetlights

Poolesville Commissioners are pleased to announce that we have completed our LED streetlight replacement program. This is just another accomplishment on several fronts to foster conservation, smart energy and green initiatives. 

The LED streetlight replacement project consisted of converting over 700 mercury, metal halide and sodium fixtures to LED's. The total project was budgeted for $205,000 and was made possible through a Maryland Energy Administration Grant of $92,000. Other First Energy incentives were also used to offset the costs.

Several of the benefits include improved lighting with the "dark sky" compliant fixtures that specifically direct light downward, lower maintenance costs and lower electrical costs.

We are proud of the LED streetlight installations, and it shows just another way that we are able to demonstrate how even a small Town such as ours can champion green initiatives.
