Lights at NYSF being switched to LED

New York State Fair

GEDDES, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — The greenest fair in America? That’s the goal!

All of the lights around Chevy Court at the New York State Fair are being switched to LED. Not only will they look better, but the fair also says they’ll save energy!

In just five years, the state is committing the fairgrounds to be energy independent, powered off the grid. That means every watt used will be made by renewable sources of either wind or air.
