Fayetteville Converts 300 Streetlights to LED

The streets of Fayetteville will be brighter and more efficient by this time next year. As part of a pilot study by the Public Works Commission, the city-owned utility plans to convert 300 streetlights to LED.

Light emitting diode technology lasts three times as long, and uses about half the electricity of sodium-vapor powered lights, the most common type of streetlight. It’s no wonder that large cities are switching their public lighting to LED fixtures to save money and make the streets brighter.

Once retrofitted with LEDs, the streetlights will cast a white light that reduces dark spots that form between poles. Retrofitting to more efficient lighting is an investment, but the lighting and environmental benefits certainly outweigh them.
