While at the New York Power Authority (NYPA), I even had the pleasure to work with New York City of Transportation staff on alternative fueled vehicles to help and ensure that the New York Power Authority could change all the traffic lights from incandescent to light emitting diodes. That got me the bug to make sure the book Green Lighting was written for the Green Guru Guides. It’s like green living logic..Ya know?! As I recently wrote up an excerpt on green lighting I realized numbers say more than I can regarding retrofits, jobs and energy prices: This $62,180 retrofit is expected to reduce electricity demand by 92,011 kilowatts, saving $10,441 per year for “The Biggest Little City in the World.” The upgrade is part of a citywide energy and water efficiency plan that is projected to save $1 million a year and create 222 jobs. At the lighting ceremony, the old incandescents were passed around the crowd as souvenirs of the past.
