A recent survey found that 95 percent of cities and municipalities in the United States that have implemented LED streetlight projects were satisfied with the overall performance of the streetlights.
Northeast Group, a Washington D.C.-based research firm, surveyed nearly 100 cities and municipalities across the U.S. that have implemented some form of LED streetlight initiatives.
"LED streetlights are transforming cities and municipalities across the U.S.," said the firm. "LED streetlights [are] helping save money through reducing energy and maintenance costs."
Surprisingly, most of the cities surveyed had only converted a small percentage of their streetlights to LED. In addition, LED streetlights also turn on and off nearly instantly and have dimming capabilities. The controlled features on the streetlights help further reduce energy consumption.
