LED street lighting kindles interest in MichiganMidwest Energy News, July 10, 2014
There’s been plenty of dark news out of Detroit recently.
But one bright spot in the beleaguered city is the ongoing replacement of aging street lights with highly efficient and attractive LED street lights. By July 1 Detroit had installed its 10,000th LED street light, putting it ahead of schedule on a plan for 65,000 new such lights through 2016.
Other municipalities statewide are also moving to adopt LED street lights, thanks to federal supports and an optional energy efficiency program providing rebates throughout most of the state.
