New solar-powered LED lighting was installed this Spring in Feaster and Pitman Parks. The purchase of the lights was funded with a grant from the CDBG program.
The new lights are completely “off-grid” as they are powered by an attached solar panel. Additionally, the lights use state-of-the-art LED lighting technology to use only a small amount of electricity and provide a very directed light that does not spill into the adjacent residential areas. These new lights are part of the City of New Brunswick’s efforts to use efficient, sustainable energy sources that also save money.
