A2: LED Lighting

The Detroit Free Press reports on the growing industry of LED light manufacturing in Michigan. Along with the manufacturing of the lights, many cities around the country are switching to LED streetlights, something Ann Arbor began three years ago. The city seeks to convert streetlights completely by June of next year. The article quotes Andrew Brix, energy programs manager for Ann Arbor, who says that the city saves $100 every year for each of the LED streetlights: “The feedback we have gotten from residents is just overwhelmingly positive.” [Source]
