Streetlight Meeting
Aug 16 @ 7:30 pm

IMPORTANT! There will be an informational meeting on the Town’s conversion of its street lights to LEDs on Wednesday, August 16th, at 7:30 PM in the Community Room at Town Hall.


Chester has purchased all its street lights from Eversource and has contracted with Tanko Lighting to convert them to LEDs.  This significantly will reduce our annual street lighting electricity and maintenance costs because LEDs use less energy and last much longer than the high pressure sodium lights currently in use.  Tanko has prepared an LED retrofit plan which the E-Team has put it online as an interactive map for residents to review.


To view the retrofit plan, click on this link  Once the map opens, you can zoom in to see more detail. To zoom in/out, click the + or – sign in the top left corner of the map or use the scroll wheel on your mouse.  To reposition the map, click the left mouse button and hold it down.  Then move the mouse to drag and recenter the map display.  To see information for a particular street light, move the mouse over it and click with the left mouse button.  A small pop-up window will appear with data for that street light.”
