Seven California cities seek grants for LED lighting
Posted by Birddog Lighting on Apr 12th 2012
The California Energy Commission is considering proposals from seven Golden State cities seeking to upgrade to LED lighting, reports NewStreetlights.
The seven cities – Big Bear Lake, Shasta Lake, Alturas, Foster City, Del Mar, Menlo Park and Dixon – are seeking funding to replace incandescent, sodium-based streetlights with bright, more efficient LED alternatives. Making the switch to LEDs could save these cities more than 50 percent on their power bills, as well as provide brighter, more directional illumination that discourages crime and reduces light pollution.
The cities are seeking grants from the CEC ranging from around $25,000 to more than $500,000, depending on the size of the project.
You don't need that kind of cash to switch to LED lights in the home, though. LED rope lighting, which is ideal for providing illumination in the bedroom, bathroom or living room, is cost-effective, energy-efficient and long-lasting, meaning it'll save you money in the long run.
