LED Street Lights

The Village of Saranac Lake is working to develop a plan for converting street lights to energy efficient LED technology. The village has been awarded a $50,000 grant from NYSERDA towards the project.  By replacing conventional street lights with energy efficient LED technology, street light energy use can be reduced by as much as 65%, generating cost savings and significant emission reductions.
