Posted on November 21, 2012 |
By Xian Chiang-Waren



BRISTOL — At their Monday, Nov. 19 meeting, Bristol selectboard members approved the Bristol Energy Committee’s recommendation to convert the town’s leased streetlights from metal halide to the more energy efficient light emitting diode (LED) lights.

An assessment by the energy committee had determined that the conversion to the more efficiently powered lighting would save the town $7,190 per year on its electric bills and take 18,000 kilowatt hours of energy off of the electric grid — all at no cost to the town.

MIDDLEBURY — Porter Medical Center will enlist the help of its more than 600 employees in finding ways to help reduce its annual energy bill of almost $1 million.

This will culminate in a contest for the Porter employees who submit the most creative and practical energy-savings tips.
