The Town of Salem was awarded $131,000 for energy efficiency projects. The Town will use its EECBG funds of $131,000 for eligible activities in the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Strategy Sector. The SMART Program (Salem Municipal Assets Reduction Targets) represents the analysis and prioritization of energy reduction objectives throughout key municipal assets. The funds are planned for the following: Assets Energy Assessment, and construction/installation of key lighting projects work given the available budget. The Town of Salem will replace lighting in public safety buildings as technical and industry standard priorities determine. Lighting consumes close to 35 percent of the electricity used in commercial buildings in the United States and affects other building systems through its electrical requirements and the waste heat that it produces. Upgrading lighting systems with efficient light sources, fixtures, and controls can reduce lighting energy use, improve the visual environment, The second lighting project will replace lighting at ball-field facilities as technical and industry standard priorities determine. Energy costs for sports lighting are less than most people think, however, innovative technology exists to significantly reduce energy usage while meeting the viewing needs of players and spectators.
