CLP submits comments to PSC, on behalf of MHSC, on LED proposal by Orange & Rockland Utilities

CLP today submitted comments to the PSC on behalf of the MHSC on new LED street lighting options proposed by Orange & Rockland Utilities. We argue that the proposal is unacceptable in its current form, and make recommendations for improvements to O&R utility LED offerings and conversion plans. O&R’s proposed LED options are too expensive and over-sized in terms of wattage, reducing the potential energy and cost savings that the switch to LEDs affords. View O&R’s proposal, as well as the comments we filed, here. The Case number for this PSC proceeding is 16-E-0226.
