Street Light Program

The City of Fitchburg has recently purchased the street lights in your neighborhood from Unitil and has contracted the maintenance and repair to Pine Ridge Technologies. During 2015, DPW is converting all 3,000 street lights in the city to LED fixtures, a more reliable and economical alternative to high pressure sodium lights. The LED lights will be networked though the use of controls that will alert DPW if a street light is out, monitor electricity use by each light, and provide capability to dim each light or adjust the brightness of the entire system at different times.
