How LED Lighting Can Transform USA

Only 10% of USA’s streetlights have been converted from the traditional sodium lights to LED lights in the past few years, despite the fact that LED lights can save up to 50% more energy than the sodium lights. The District of Columbia has 71,000 streetlights; San Diego will upgrade 14,000 light fixtures to LED luminaires. The Department of Energy (DoE) estimates that if the whole country converts to LED lights from sodium lights over the next two decades, it could save up to $120 billion over that period. Cities across Asia and Europe are already switching to LED lighting to save energy as well as maintenance costs. The Central Planning Agency of China is also discussing its LED conversion program for the whole country.
