[ARCHIVED] Town of Andover to Save $100,000 Per Year through LED Streetlight Program

The Town of Andover is moving forward with a project to retrofit 1,800 streetlights with LED fixtures. Converting the old  streetlights to efficient LEDs will reduce energy consumption and maintenance costs contributing to savings of over $100,000 annually. 

Andover’s Energy Management Team has further saved the community money by reducing the cost of installation by obtaining rebates resulting in approximately $195,000 in additional cost savings. The Town has also been awarded approximately $85,000 through the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Resources LED Streetlight Rapid Retrofit Grant Program.

"This is a no-brainer for our community. Our residents and business owners are saving tax money on installation, and the annual savings of over $100,000 will go right back into programs and services town-wide," Town Manager Flanagan said. "I would like to thank the hard working people on Andover’s Energy Management Team for their hard work to see this program through to completion."

The LED streetlights have been ordered and the installation phase will begin by the end of this month and will run through the end of the year.

Please visit the LED Streetlight Project webpage for detailed information, frequently asked questions, and an interactive Geographical Information Systems (GIS) map with up-to-date information. The map gives viewers the ability to follow the conversion progress in real time and see when each street will be completed.

Anyone with any questions about the LED Streetlight Project should contact Janet Nicosia, Manager of Energy and Utilities at 978-623-8760 or
