City of Salisbury seeks to cut down energy consumption

Salisbury is looking to cut excessive energy use through the Delmarva Power & Light Energy Efficient Communities program. 

According to a city spokesperson Chris Demone, there are dozens of city-owned buildings that need better and new technology that are ideal for energy consumption.  

Demone said there are about eight buildings that were built in the 1950s that need better insulation and replacing of LED lights. 

He said the program will help to identify which buildings qualify for the new tune-ups. 

"There is a lot of legacy technology here that is a little less than ideal for energy consumption purposes, so if we were to replace LED lights that would be an area that we would want to after right away," said Demone.

The Salisbury City Council will discuss moving forward with the program on Monday, August 6.
