Municipalities are a key stakeholder in this issue and your own experience and input is critical to the BPU’s process.

Please see the BPU’s notice for more information on the input sought.

A public meeting is scheduled for 10 a.m. on Tuesday, February 6 at Thomas Edison University in Trenton. Written comments can be submitted to Aida Camacho-Welch, Board Secretary, NJ BPU, 44 South Clinton Avenue, 9th Floor, Trenton, NJ 08625. Written comments may also be submitted electronically to All comments must be received on or before 5 p.m. on February 21, 2020.  

We encourage our members to share their experiences with LED streetlight conversion and to participate in the stakeholder process with the BPU. If you plan on submitting written comments we ask that you forward a copy to the League as well.
