    City workers in Birmingham, Alabama, began installing new LED street lights along Bessemer Superhighway on Monday. It's part of the city's plan to improve public safety and increase energy savings.
  • 50-70%
    reduction in electricity bills is a key reason for upgrading to LED lighting. In addition, the long lifetime of LED lights reduces the need to replace failed lamps and can lead to significant savings, particularly in the cost of sending out maintenance crews.
  • $3 million
    Estimated cost of implementing/upgrading LED street lights along city streets, in parking decks, in parks and in neighborhoods.
  • 3 years
    Expected duration of the project. Birmingham City officials have partnered with Alabama Power to execute the project.
