Energy Committee

The Wilton Energy Committee (WEC) is a committee of volunteers that advises the Wilton Board of Selectmen on energy policy.


LED LIGHTING PROJECT:
 
WEC is hard at work along with Wapack Sustainability crafting a plan to replace our streetlights with LED lighting. 

We meet Monday mornings at 9am in Town Hall to share progress and determine next steps. This is NOT an official meeting, but you are welcome to join us.

Here is a link to a 7.5 minute presentation on this project:

          PUBLIC INFORMATION MEETING:           

This meeting is to inform Town of Wilton folks about an energy and cost-saving endeavor that the Wilton Energy Committee and the Wapack Sustainability Group are collaborating on. This is a conversion project of Wilton’s streetlights to LED.

With over 140 streetlights that we currently pay ‘full-freight’ for, conversion to LEDS will reduce our annual streetlight power bill of approximately $24,000 by over 40%; $10,000 or more per year. In addition, the LED lighting is a GREEN option, and is superior to the current lighting system. The entire project will pay for itself with savings in two to three years!

We are hosting an informational meeting on Wednesday, January 2nd, at 6pm. Town Hall. Join Wilton Energy and Wapack Sustainability for a brief presentation of the LED Streetlight project, questions and answers, and discussion of criteria for streetlights.

Please come! We want your ideas and thoughts.

Mission Statement

Our main purpose has been to advise the Town of Wilton about ways to reduce the town’s energy expenditures. Our mandate includes analyzing current energy use, identifying opportunities for usage reductions, proposing cost effective upgrades to town facilities, and keeping the town apprised of improvements planned, underway, or completed. Beyond that, we propose to help raise the town’s awareness of ways to reduce our collective energy footprint, in residential and commercial as well as municipal contexts.
