In an effort to save money, save energy and provide better service, the Town of Warren has recently purchased all of its street lights. This step alone will save taxpayer money; however, this is only the first step in the energy saving (money saving) process. In the coming months, all of the town-owned street light fixtures in town will be converted to energy efficient LEDs with controls. This street light conversion program will lead to an estimated energy savings of between 68%-77% while reducing light pollution and allowing for better visual clarity.
Effective immediately, street light outages should be reported directly to the Town’s maintenance contractor at 1-866-773-7138 (24/7 access).
October, 2019 Update
To date, 1,145 streetlights have been replaced with energy efficent LED's. The savings realized through reduced maintenance costs and reduced power usage has so far totaled $398,263. These savings will continue to grow as we gain access to the controls and can refine the dimming schedule of the lights. Below you can find a full update from PRISM on the timeline for completion.
