New Energy-Efficient, Cost Effective Lighting at Emma Clark Library

Setauket, NY – November 2, 2017 –

Some “bright” news coming from Emma Clark Library this month! The Library is upgrading from fluorescent bulbs to new, energy-efficient and cost effective LED lighting.

There are over 1,100 bulbs and fixtures that will be replaced in the interior of the 1960s, 1980s, and 2000 sections of the building, which will result in an estimated 46% savings in energy usage per year. The old fluorescent bulbs and ballasts will be properly removed and recycled. Work is currently underway and will take about a week. All work is being done at night to avoid disruptions to library visitors.

This project is made possible through the PSEG Long Island 2017 Commercial Energy Efficiency Program. Rebates from PSEG and funding from a New York State Public Library Construction grant should allow the Library to recoup the cost in less than six months.

“As a centerpiece of the Three Village area, the Emma Clark Library is in a unique position to serve as an example of good stewardship and efficient operation,” says Ted Gutmann, Director of the Emma Clark Library. “The LED project underscores the commitment of the Library Trustees in seeing the Library as a responsible ‘citizen’ and for making our community a better place now, and for future generations.”

The Emma S. Clark Memorial Library, located at 120 Main Street in Setauket and on the web at www.emmaclark.org, provides public library service to all residents of the Three Village Central School District.
