  • The LED lights use 50 to 60 per cent less energy compared to the traditional street lights
  • For an average city, LED street lights will also reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 324,000 tonnes over 20 years

Conversion program

It may also be a good time for a city to update their lighting standards and policies to reflect current practices and standards. Turning this into the conversion program is wise. Beyond a conversion program, the city should consider LED lighting on new projects such as those born from development and local improvement.
