Brooklyn uses NOPEC grants for two LED lighting upgrade projects

The City of Brooklyn is using grants from the Northeast Ohio Public Energy Council (NOPEC) to fund two LED lighting upgrade projects, creating energy cost savings, Cleveland.com reports. Mayor Katie Gallagher said $39,000 from a 2017 NOPEC award is being used to upgrade street pole lighting on its main thoroughfares, involving 187 lights. Additionally, a 2018 $37,000 award will be put toward a “$50,000 lighting upgrade taking place at the John M. Coyne Recreation Center,” according to the article. That project will include “rec center lights, outdoor lighting in the rec center and pavilion lights in the parks.” Gallagher said projects such as these that reduce costs benefit the residents of Brooklyn “because then we can reallocate those savings to something else that they see directly in other services.” For more, read the full article.
