LED Street Light Conversion Project complete in downtown Salmo

The Village of Salmo has completed their 2016 LED Street Light Conversion Project.

Every street light in the Village's downtown core was converted to the efficient LED Street lights. 

The project was installed by Martech Electrical Systems out of Castlegar, and the village will see the costs and installation recovered within 5 years time due to reduced maintenance and energy costs. 

Mayor Stephen White says they are already receiving positive feedback.

This project was part of the Village's new strategic plan as well as their Strategic Community Energy and Emission plans. 

Eventually all the lights in the village will be changed over to LED.
