According to PR Newswire report, in a survey of 100 cities and municipalities using LED streetlights, 95% report satisfaction with the overall performance of the lights.
Northeast Group, LLC. surveyed nearly 100 cities and municipalities across the US that have implemented some form of LED streetlight initiatives. The results were published today in the new study “United States Smart Infrastructure: LED and Smart Street Lighting.”
The study identified nearly 400 US cities and municipalities that had either already begun or had considered installing LED streetlights. After conducting interviews with nearly 100 of them, the survey was able to draw conclusions such as the actual savings captured by pilot projects and full deployments, the public reaction, the most common financing mechanisms, and the vendors serving this market. Northeast Group found that over 25 vendors were already active in the US LED streetlight market and that, with expected strong growth, the market will continue to attract many vendors offering diverse solutions.
The more efficient LED streetlights were found to save on average nearly 60% in combined energy and maintenance costs.
