Lunenburg Light Concerns?

Maybe it's something they should consider in the town of Lunenburg office. A recent power outage has Antigonish council rethinking a plan to install energy efficient lighting throughout their community. The Town had been installing L-E-D lighting in street lamps after 60 of the units were provided free-of-charge on a trial basis. But none of the L-E-D lights came back on after power was restored following last week's outage. Mayor Carl Chisholm says plans to convert the entire town to energy efficient lighting may have to be put on hold. Lunenburg Council is getting ready to install 48 L-E-D streetlights that have been provided to them - along with several other Nova Scotia municipalities for evaluation and testing.
