The City of Geneva is in the final steps of being able to convert all of our streetlights to LED, as the acquisition of the City lighting district assets from NYSEG is complete. NYSEG is just finishing a couple open work orders that have been reported, going forward the City will maintain our City street lighting system with the goal of reducing energy consumption via LED technology. For current or future street light information or to report outages, please contact the City’s Public Works Department at email@example.com or 315-789-3101. This project started with the downtown lights conversion since we owned and maintained those lights already. The downtown project is complete. Our hope is that all of our city streetlights will all be converted by the end of 2019.
