Edmonton Installing LED Streetlights

The Edmonton Journal reports that the City of Edmonton is installing energy efficient LED streetlights throught the city. After a two year pilot program the city decided to replace 4,500 high-pressure sodium street lights in 12 neighborhoods. The move is expected to save the city $100,000 a year in lighting costs and reduce greenhouse emissions. The LED streetlights are also expected to reduce light polution by directing most of the light to the street below and not into neighboring windows.
