Posted: October 10, 2018
A ceremonial cheque in excess of $435,000 was presented by Veridian Connections President & CEO, Michael Angemeer, as part of the Save On Energy rebate program, to acknowledge the City’s recent street light conversion project. The City converted over 3,600 street lights to Light Emitting Diode (LED) lighting technology. The new street lights consume less energy, have a longer lifetime, offer increased visibility, and have reduced light pollution.
“We are thrilled to receive a rebate in excess of $435,000 from Veridian. In addition, we will also be saving approximately $250,000 per year in electricity costs,” said Mayor Christopher Taso. “Equally as important, the brighter LED lights enhance safety for both vehicular and pedestrian traffic. This project has proven to be a success on many fronts for the City of Belleville.”
