Minnesota to Convert 100,000 Streetlights to LEDs

Xcel Energy, the largest electric company in Minnesota, intends to replace all of its 100,000 streetlights across the state with energy-efficient LEDs — part of a proposed $100 million, five-year streetlight upgrade in all eight states it serves. In Minneapolis, Xcel owns and maintains 28,000 streetlights and charges the city a monthly rate for each one. Another 20,000 streetlights in Minneapolis are owned by the city, which pays Xcel for the electricity. The new lights are being installed mainly on bridges and roadways, but other areas, such as weigh stations, rest areas, tunnels and maintenance facilities, are also being considered. http://www.govtech.com/fs/Minnesota-to-Convert-Streetlights-to-LEDs.html
