Board OKs LED fixtures for village buildings, not streets

Ozaukee Press Correspondent

The Village of Fredonia Public Works Committee last week approved spending as much as $34,000 to replace lights in village buildings with energy-efficient LED fixtures.

But before the village proceeds with the project, it will test the new lights at the Government Center.

The energy savings from all the lights in government buildings with LED fixtures is estimated to cover the cost of the project in 2-1/2 years, officials said. 

The committee, however, was less interested in participating in replacing street lights with LED fixtures.

Officials noted that the street lights are owned by We Energies, and the savings from the conversions would be too small to  be of value to the village.

But, officials said, the village could require developers of new subdivisions to install LED street lights. No action was taken on that concept.
