Gaslight gadgets go green, save money and CO2 for S.O.

Gaslight savings

South Orange has an ambitious plan to install devices with solar-sensors to switch a dozen or so of our iconic gaslights off during the day and on at night.  This plan will save the town money and CO2 emissions, as there is no reason for the lights to be on during the day.   After much hard work by Trustee, Howard Levison and the town’s Energy Committee, the plan is beginning to come to fruition, as the first one has been installed on Montague.  If the dozen prototypes work smoothly for a year, they would then be installed on all the town’s gaslights, saving us $150,000 per year in energy payments to PSE & G.  The cost to install one on every gaslight in town would be 1.5 million dollars.  After ten years, it’s all savings!
