The City of Greensburg recently completed a project whereby all street lights in town - 303 of them - are LED. The project was formally acknowledged with a community ceremony on January 20. According to the company in charge of this project, Greensburg is the first U.S. city to have 100% LED street lighting.
LED stands for Light Emitting Diode. Most people are familiar with LEDs as the red and green lights on the faces of alarm clocks and electronic devices. In recent years, this technology has exploded and its applications have significantly expanded. There are many advantages to using LEDs over more traditional lights.
