On Monday, Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania) City Councilman William Peduto released a plan to convert the city’s 40,000 streetlights to LED lights, potentially saving taxpayers more than $2.5 million and reducing more than 984 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions each year.
“This is a plan that saves taxpayers millions of dollars, while also protecting the environment,” LEDs Magazine quoted Councilman Peduto as saying. “LED street lights use less energy, require less maintenance, provide a brighter light, reduce carbon dioxide emissions, and contain no mercury. This is a win-win situation.”
