Street Light Replacement Through Energy Grant
Village of Norridge Replaces Street Lights Through Energy Efficient Lighting Grants
Over the past 12 months, the Village of Norridge has been the recipient of rebate incentives awarded by the Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity (DCEO) and the Com Ed Energy Efficiency Programs. Approximately $200,000 awarded to the Village has allowed for the replacement of more than 200 outdoor street lights throughout the community. The outdoor lights retrofitted with LED energy efficient lighting is expected to result in an annual cost savings of approximately $50,000 for the Village.
The Village of Norridge strives to set a high standard of leadership and competency in the promotion of sound conservation practices. Over the past 5 years, the Village has conducted energy savings audits to determine what types of lighting & HVAC projects are eligible for grant monies through DCEO. “The awarding of this grant is yet another example of how this and other similar initiatives are not only good for the environment but also saves tax dollars”, said Village President James Chmura.
