Despite the high cost of LEDs, which has turned off cities and municipalities from adopting the new lighting technology, new research has slowly made them understand just how much they can benefit from the efficiency and long lifespan of LEDs, even with their higher price tag.
The LED lighting revolution has stepped out of the home and made its way to the streets as more cities across the globe are realizing the cost and energy savings that can be realized when traditional street lights are replaced by energy-efficient LED counterparts. Unfortunately, many cities have been held back in the switch to LED lights due to financial constraints that make it difficult to complete the initial transformation. While these lighting sources save significant amounts of energy over time, the cash outlay has often turned municipalities off to the possibilities. This has been especially true prior to the release of solid, scientific findings regarding the energy and cost savings associated with LED lighting.
The positive news is that this research is now available to give cities the guidance necessary to successfully justify and complete the switch to LED lights.
