Update on Wellesley’s New Streetlights!

Wellesley is in process of installing the new streetlights! The NRC has long been concerned about the effects of light pollution on our health, safety, environment and wildlife. As Wellesley replaces 3,000 neighborhood streetlights with cost effective and energy saving LED (light emitting diode) fixtures, we hope to ensure that these new fixtures are as environmentally friendly as possible, maintain safety standards and improve the character of the town. 

You can follow the LED replacement project, street by street, on the Municipal Light Plant's Map!
