HAMPSTEAD UPGRADING STREET LIGHTING NETWORK: The town is currently upgrading its street lighting network, "changing more than 451 sodium lights to light emitting diode (LED) lights on its green cobra lamp posts," and the work is scheduled to be complete by the end of the month, "barring any unforeseen delays due to poor weather and other similar obstacles," says an advisory. The upgrades represent an investment of $267,000, and the return on investment is expected to take five years, and every year thereafter the Town will attain cumulative energy and maintenance savings." The LED lights are touted as providing better visibility on the road surface, lasting longer and being better for the environment, providing energy savings of up to 70 percent and "reduceing light pollution emitted by sodium lights."
