A First for Atlanta: LED Street Lights

07 21 2015 | Posted in Sustainability

It's here – the first LED street light installed on a City of Atlanta street! Did you know that compared to a standard street light, LED's last twice as long, use half the power, provide color accurate nighttime lighting, and can be programmed to dim after certain hours for even more savings?!  Our fearless leader of sustainability, Walter Brown, championed the approvals so that you can now bask in LED street light – so come check them out along Glen Iris.  While some property owners have installed these lights in parking lots, this is the first light that both GA Power and the City of Atlanta (thanks to Walter!) have approved to be installed on a city street.

Three cheers for energy savings!
