New LED Street Lights in DC


“Dear PoPville,

DDOT has started installing LED streetlights in the district whenever an existing high pressure sodium lamp fails. There are almost 68,000 streetlights in the district and on an average every new energy efficient LED street light will save the district 350kWh in annual energy consumption and approximately $40 in energy cost. These LED lights will have a life of 12 years which will also significantly reduce the maintenance cost of the streetlights for the the government.

Another major advantage is that the white LED street lights can also help in identifying crimes caught on camera since the white light can show the exact color of the car/shirt/person compared to orange light.
