City of Los Angeles changing street lights to LED's saving sixty percent in energy costs

One hundred and forty thousand street lights in the City of Los Angeles are currently being switched from low-pressure sodium to LED lights. Over eight thousand lights have already been upgraded in the 15th District. 

The new lights which seem brighter, but are actually just whiter, will save the City sixty percent in energy costs! The new lights also have up to three times the life span of the old lights according the the Bureau of Street Lighting.

Will "main" streets like Western Ave eventually get these new lights? I must say I think they are a HUGE improvement. I can finally sleep without a too-bright light shining in my face. Thank you!
