Webster Groves, Missouri, is among the latest U.S. cities to begin adopting LED technology, says New Streetlights.
The town's business district will soon be getting a facelift with the installation of eight decorative lighting poles topped with shining light-emitting diodes that will shed a cool, natural glow over some of the city's busiest areas. Soon afterward, the city will begin installing LED lights throughout its neighborhoods.
During the summer of 2012, some 88 light fixtures should be installed or replaced with LEDs.
“The fixture we selected, a 100 watt equivalent LED, will replace existing 150 watt HPS streetlights, so we anticipate immediate savings from reduced energy consumption,” Paul Verheyen, the city's public works director, told the source.
You can enjoy the energy and moving savings benefits of LEDs at home, too. Try using LED strip lights to illuminate the dark areas in your home, like cabinets, drawers and cupboards.
