According to reports, South Ben city of Indiana State is planning to replace the more than 4,000 traffic lights with LED lighting fixtures at more than 205 intersections. With each LED lamp to save 85% of the energy, the city can save roughly $186,000 annually in just electricity costs. And that is not the only benefit of using LED traffic lights.


According to Assistant City Engineer of the city Rob Nichols, the city spend well over 2 million dollars a year in just electricity for the incandescent bulbs, and the 85 percent reduction in energy used by traffic lights means saving 15 percent of the electricity cost.


Another significant benefit in using LED lighting is saving maintenance costs. Incandescent bulbs need to be changed every year to make sure the traffic lights can work normally, but LED bulbs are covered by a ten year warranty, which means no change is needed until ten years after the installation. They can work even longer than warranty as LED actually dim overtime. After giving off guaranteed brightness for ten years, they will continue to dim for years before they stop lighting.
