CLARKSTOWN — Wind power will now help to keep streetlights and municipal buildings lit. The alternative energy source would cost the town about $12,000 more a year, a minimal impact because of rising gas prices, said Amy Mele, deputy town attorney for purchasing. "It's not about savings, but more a policy statement," Mele said. "We're trying to make it a more competitive form of energy."
