Bangor Street Lights Being Switched to LEDs 

Bangor’s getting a lot of new street lights.Money from the federal stimulus program will help the city switch hundreds of street lights to energy efficient lighting.City Manager Ed Barrett says the new lights will use only half as much energy as the current lights, saving tens of thousands of dollars a year on bangor’s power bill.”We think it’s environmentally appropriate. The city has a strong effort to improve our environment and this gives us the opportunity to reduce our electricity uses and reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.”More than three-hundred street lights will be switched over.Barrett says he hopes it’s all done by the end of summer.
