How LEDs Save Money and Cut Down on Energy Demands
Over the year, more and more cities are switching to eco-friendly LEDs. Streetlights actually take up a huge percent of the total power used by a country, so going power-friendly on them is just natural. Forty-five million municipal street lights consumed about 7 percent of the all electricity used for lighting across the United States in 2011, according to Chicago-based Navigant Consulting. Trimming the amount of energy used to light America’s urban thoroughfares can produce a dramatic reduction in electric demand, reducing the stress on the nation’s already strained power grid and reducing the need for new and costly electric generation plants fueled by fossil fuels or renewable sources.
