Ann Arbor: On Its Way to 100% LED Light Power
Ann Arbor, Michigan has recently made the decision light up their downtown with 100% LED streetlights. The city plans the installation of more than 1000 streetlights by the beginning of the upcoming month. These newly developed 100% LED streetlights by Lumecon are made to burn 5 times longer than normal streetlights and use up less than half of the energy. The implementation of 100% LED street lamps plans to reduce greenhouse gas emission by 2,425 tons of CO2 annually which is about the same as taking 400 cars off the road for a year. The Ann Arbor local utility provider plans to research the outcome of this project with an intent to push for new LED tariffs.
