Wilmington looks to save green with green initiatives

Wednesday, June 18th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The City of Wilmington has been working hard for years to become more environmentally friendly.

Crews just finished installing new LED street lights around Wilmington.

“I think green efforts are great,” Wilmington resident Erica Christensen.

Solar panels, electric cars and now lights are just some of the ways the City of Wilmington has made an effort to go green.

Duke Energy Progress just finished installing 200 LED lights across the city that use less energy and emit less green house emissions. City spokeswoman Malissa Talbert says these new lights alone will save the city at least $10,000 a year.

“Because they use produce less energy they save us money in the long term,” Talbert said.

Christensen says she hopes the city sees the monetary difference.

“I think it’s great, as long as, of course, they use that money to go towards something worthwhile I guess,” she said.

Talbert says the city has not decided where the money will go yet.

“You know I haven’t thought about that. I guess it depends,” Talbert said. “That’s a nice problem to have. To have savings, and try to figure out what to do with it.”

The city has been pursuing grants for years to fund these kinds of projects. Talbert says they will continue to seek more grants to further these green efforts.

The city hopes to eventually install these new lightbulbs into all 8,000 street lights across Wilmington.
