The Town is currently in the process of converting all of our streetlights to LED. There are approximately lights in inventory that we acquired from Eversource. If there is an issue with a pole that has utilities on it with or without a streetlight, Eversource is still responsible for any repairs. The payback on the project is under 5 years. It will also allow for possible future expansion to monitor traffic patterns, install remote cameras, create WiFi networks, among other technologies. Jump to. Sections of this page.
