Light up the streets but use less energy.

Salmon Arm council has written a letter to BC Hydro to request that it consider the city as the site for a pilot project using energy-efficient street lights. When discussing new sites for lights at a recent council meeting, Coun. Chad Eliason asked staff if there is a possibility of getting a less-consumptive variety.

Staff said the Crown corporation is not prepared to look at an LED solution at this time, but perhaps it would consider the former JL Jackson site a good trial in 2016. Council agreed unanimously to write a letter stating the city would be interested in a partnership for new street lights or innovations.
