Bozeman Street Lights

Bozeman Going Green!

Bozeman Street Lights

Bozeman is going green.  At least the street lights are.  The city will be replacing our

lighting with LED’s in January and February.  They have budgeted $8,800 to make this happen, but expect they will be 80% more efficient, hoping to reduce the monthly $32,000 electric bill. (Wow, can you imagine budgeting that into your household budget?).

Residents should notice the change, the lights producer a whiter light and should be less harmful to the fantastic night skies we have.
