53,000 streetlights on Oahu converted to bright, energy-efficient LEDs
Written By Blognews
The streets of Oahu are a little bit brighter thanks to the city’s partnership with Johnson Controls. On Tuesday, city leaders were joined at Honolulu Hale by Hawaii Energy and Johnson Controls to announce the completion of work to install some 53,000 LED streetlights in Oahu neighborhoods. It’s a change that will likely save millions per year in utility costs. “LED lights make the streets brighter. Now why do we like this? I think it’s obvious to most people. A brighter street is a safer street - for pedestrians maybe crossing, for people driving down the street, and also to cut down on crime,” Mayor Caldwell said.
