Newtown’s park lights have been upgraded to new LED fixtures thanks to a $10,000 grant earned through Energize Connecticut’s Clean Energy Communities program, administered by Eversource.
A total of 31 light post fixtures have been replaced with new high efficiency LEDs, which will save the town roughly $4,000 and reduce its energy usage by more than 21,000 kilowatt-hours every year.
