GE Lighting is helping the City of East Cleveland to decrease energy costs by replacing 45 standard-technology municipal street lights with GE’s Evolve™ LED roadway street lights. The project grows out of a long partnership between GE Lighting and East Cleveland, which has been the home of the unit’s headquarters for close to 100 years. A one-mile block along Noble Road serves as a demonstration to other municipalities of the benefits of a higher-efficiency lighting system. The U.S. Department of Energy’s national laboratories predicts that LED lights reduce energy needs by more than 50 percent and maintenance costs by more than 80 percent compared to traditional lights. It’s estimated that the new GE Evolve LED street lights will reduce the city’s energy use by 28 million watts a year.
