BRONX NEWS: City to replace noisy diesel light towers with solar units


The city plans to ditch its diesel-powered light towers — used to illuminate special events or ward off crime — for new solar units, officials said Wednesday.


City officials have completed a contract with Progress Solar Solution to supply solar-electric, zero-emission light towers for its mobile fleet operations.


The lights will replace the 530 towers currently powered by diesel — which, in addition to being worse for the environment, are noisier, more labor-intensive to turn on and off and produce an odor.


The five-year contract to make the switch totals .4 million.
