At the November 10, 2021, Board of Supervisors (BOS) meeting, Township Engineer Leanna Colubriale of RVE put forward a proposal to authorize approval of the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) Regional Streetlight Procurement Letter of Intent.

In an email to BOS members Ms. Colubriale summarized the program:

There are four general phases of the Regional Streetlight Procurement Program (RSLPP), with Phase 1 being the completion of a Feasibility Study. This is prepared by Keystone Lighting Solutions (KLS) through DVRPC at no cost to the Township. After the feasibility study is completed and reviewed between the Township and KLS, the Township makes the decision to enter into the program. Decisions typically are made in December.

If the Township decides to move forward, Phase 2 consists of Design and Auditing, which typically will occur in January through March 2022. KLS will then perform the field audit of the existing lights and develop the database. KLS then prepares the report on the design and cost options. At the end of Phase 2, the Township will decide if they want to contract with Armor Electric through DVRPC to complete the work. There is typically a 20% reduction on costs through this program than if the municipality did it on their own.

The next phases are the PECO rebates, which KLS is responsible for, and then construction. They are generally looking at a construction timeline of summer 2022.
