Morton Grove Wins Grant For Eco Lighting

Newer, more energy-efficient lighting will replace old lighting fixtures.

 

Five buildings owned by the village of Morton Grove will have their old, energy-hogging fluorescent lighting fixtures replaced by new energy-efficient models.

The village won a grant of almost $59, 472 from the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation (ICE), and it will pay for one third of an upcoming project to replace lights, the village announced Friday. The remaining funds are expected in June from a second grant.

The following buildings will get the upgrades:

  1. Village Hall, 6101 Capulina Avenue
  2. , 6101 Capulina Avenue
  3. Fire Station 4, 6250 Lincoln Avenue
  4. Public Works Department, 7840 Nagle Avenue
  5. South Pumping Station, 6702 Oakton Street
  6. North Pumping Station,8820 National Avenue
  7. , 6140 Dempster Street

Five of those buildings (all except the Civic Center and Fire Station) have outdated lighting fixtures, and the new fixtures are expected to cut their consumption of kilowatts in half, the village said. In addition, the new fixtures will eliminate the need for maintenance for five to seven years.
