FREE or Low Cost LED Exit Lights Offered To Local Businesses and Nonprofits

Save Energy and Lower Your Electricity Costs

The Environmental Collective Impact Network (Ecoin) in Middletown is offering businesses, commercial real estate owners, and local nonprofits in greater Middletown the opportunity to receive free or low-cost LED Exit Light Fixtures. This program will reduce electricity costs by approximately $47.30 per year for each incandescent exit light replaced.

The first 100 fixtures ordered will be for FREE, provided by Middletown's Clean Energy Task Force, a member of Ecoin. After those first 100 fixtures have been offered, companies or groups may buy the same fixtures for $14 each and then be eligible for a $10 per fixture rebate from the CT Energy Efficiency Fund, resulting in a net cost of $4 each.

Each of these exit light fixtures uses a 4 watt LED bulb, which costs approximately $5.26 per year to operate, versus the usual 40 watt exit light that costs about $52.60 per year to operate (assuming electricity charges of 15 cents per kilowatt hour). A group order will be placed when a total of 100 fixtures (from various businesses) have been requested.

Ecoin is a coalition of local environmental nonprofits, colleges, city commissions, churches, and the business community. For more info on Ecoin or this offer, call John Hall, Energy Coordinator for the City of Middletown at 860-344-3503.
