Nelson Offers Substantial Savings to Parsippany


nelsonfeatureAt the first of several budget hearings for 2013, Parsippany-Troy Hills Councilman Nelson recommended that Parsippany-Troy Hills Township could save a substantial amount each year by converting municipal owed electric street lights to solar powered ones.

“The Township is currently budgeting $500,000 to fund the electrical bill for street lamps,” Nelson said.

“The cost of retrofitting each street lamp is minimal and with federal grant money possibly available, the Parsippany-Troy Hills  would be able to withdraw our energy dependency and within two years we could reduce our electric bill to almost zero. It’s a no brainer.”
