Albany-based Abbott Energy, Inc. is the fourth company vying to secure a contract with Amsterdam to assist the city with purchasing streets lights from National Grid and upgrade them to LEDs. However, unlike prior proposals it’s not a more encompassing energy performance contract.

Amsterdam Common Councils members listened Tuesday (6/6/17) to Abbott Energy representatives propose a project holding an overall cost of about $4.4 million to purchase and upgrade street lights throughout the city. The estimated savings over 25 years for the city would total $9 million under the proposal.
