1,300 street lamps in Olean have been switched to LEDs after more than a year of work.
Not only do the lights use about 30% less energy, officials say, but incentives were also put in place by the state to encourage the transition.
For Olean’s conversion project, National Grid provided a $70,000 incentive. The city contributed about $40,000.
