WMLP Streetlight Evaluation

WMLP Streetlight Evaluation

The Wellesley Municipal Light Plant (“WMLP”) is committed to seeking out and evaluating ways to improve the effectiveness and value of services we provide to Wellesley residents and businesses. Last year the WMLP submitted an application for a grant to complete a light emitting diode (“LED”) retrofit of 3,100 streetlights. The Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (“DOER”) has preliminarily approved the WMLP’s request. The LED retrofit will save taxpayers $125,000 annually and eliminate 930,000 kilowatt‐hours of electricity. The electricity reduction is the equivalent of taking 134 passenger vehicles off the roadway each year.

We would like your input to help us determine the most appropriate neighborhood street lighting solution for Wellesley.

The streetlights on Croton Street and Pine Street have been retrofitted to allow residents to evaluate three alternative approaches. Each street is marked with different colored bands on the poles. We would appreciate it if you could take the time to visit both Croton Street and Pine Street and provide your feedback.

Please visit these streets during the evening and let us know what you think by completing the following short survey.

Should you have any questions or wish to provide a verbal response to the survey, please contact the WMLP at 781‐235‐7600 to speak with a member of the LED streetlight conversion team.
