A Cambria County Fire Department is making a switch that could potentially save them thousands of dollars a year.
We stopped by the Oakland Fire Department in suburban Johnstown on Monday to find out what it is all about.
It is what just about every homeowner, renter and business owner complains of every month when opening up the bills.
So the Oakland Fire Department took it into its own hands by simply unscrewing the bulbs and applying for a grant through Penelec Sustainable Energy Fund.
One by one, each and every light is changed to a LED light and the switch is estimated to save about seventy five percent annually for the Volunteer Fire Department where every penny counts.
Doing things like protecting the community and using the department’s donations to where it means the most.
