Anchorage To Install 16,000 LED Streetlights

anchorage

Anchorage, Alaska is planning to replace 16,000 streetlight fixtures—a quarter of all the streetlight fixtures in the city; with LEDs. The new streetlights will use 50% less energy than the current fixtures, which could save Anchorage $360,000 each year. The city has invested $2.2 million in the plan. And, since Anchorage has 85 days a year with less than eight hours of sun, energy efficiency initiatives like these are crucial to the city’s survival. Once this catches on in other major cities, we’ll save billions.
