- Harrison Township is honored and excited to be featured in Sustainable Pittsburgh’s latest newsletter for last year’s street light upgrade! Spotlight details: “After replacing over 2,740 street lights with LED bulbs, Harrison Township is saving about $5,000 every month in energy costs. Faith Payne, Executive Secretary, says, ‘All it took was our approval and signature!’ Besides saving money, the lights have been well-received by the community, because they provide better light and cast a wider area of light than the previous type of bulbs.”
