The program is similar to the Adopt-A-Highway program, where individuals, companies or non-profit organizations adopt a portion of a highway.READ MORE: Jalen Rose Brings COVID Vaccine Clinic To Detroit Academy
The Adopt-A-Watt program gives sponsors community recognition for funding of clean energy, alternative fuel and energy-efficiency projects.
The funds raised will be used to support other Dearborn clean energy projects such as the installation of electric vehicle charging stations. Dearborn is at the forefront of such projects…it’s already installed high-efficiency LED streetlights on Oakwood, south of Michigan Avenue.READ MORE: Stimulus Check Update: Is A Fourth Relief Payment In Your Future?
“Dearborn is committed to green initiatives, but we must be conscious of our financial challenges. The Adopt-A-Watt program is a way for Dearborn to boost our energy efficiency measures and install green technology without impacting our general fund,” Mayor John B. O’Reilly, Jr. said.
The installation is part of an overall initiative forwarded by the National Adopt-A-Watt program to encourage the use of energy-efficient lights in communities and promote the conservation of energy.MORE NEWS: American Heart Foundation To Host 2021 Detroit Heart Walk On May 15
