Recently, officials in Chicago, USA confirmed that they plan to replace 85% of street lights with LEDs (antique LED bulbs) Over the next four years. This has made Chicago one of the largest cities in the world to convert lighting illumination to LED.
The plan replaces 270,000 HPS lamps with more energy efficient and durable LEDs (waterproof LED Flood Light). The plan will start from last year and is expected to cost 160 million US dollars (about 1 billion RMB). But it will also give Chicago City Council energy costs. According to LED manufacturers, LED technology can reduce energy consumption by 60% to 80% and achieve return on investment in two years or less.

The plan also contains a smart grid that can be instructed when the lights do not work so that residents can no longer report errors.

Rahm Emanuel, Mayor of Chicago, said: "This project is a win-win situation. It is not only one of the largest modernization projects in the United States, but it can also reduce the number of residents calling 311 (Note: 311 is hotline for the Civic Service Center.)

He also said: "According to this proposed project, we will provide modern, reliable and high quality lighting equipment that will improve the quality of life in all communities in Chicago."

Replacing headlights with LED lights (Economic LED filament light) Is a global trend, and more and more cities around the world have switched to LEDs to reduce costs and carbon dioxide emissions.
