Town of Ulster joins regional street light consortium as is considers switching to LED fixtures
TOWN OF ULSTER, N.Y. >> The town will participate in a “request for proposals” being issued by the Mid-Hudson Street Light Consortium in an effort to reduce the amount of electricity used by municipalities in the region.
The Town Board voted last week to join the regional effort. Supervisor James Quigley said the proposals will provide the town with information about the cost of switching to LED bulbs for street lights.
“It’s a voluntary action on the part of the towns,” he said. “I wish to have the town’s name added to the RFP (request for proposals) so that when the RFP goes out, if this Town Board feels it is advantageous to take advantage of the services and the prices that are achieved by this bidding process … the town has the ability to participate in the bulk purchase of LED lights.”
