Pittsburgh City Council held a meeting today regarding Councilman Bill Peduto’s proposal to convert all 40,000 street lights in Pittsburgh to LEDs.

According to Peduto:
“LED lighting has proven to cut energy use by as much as 80%, saving energy and taxpayers millions of dollars. This is one of the greatest ways we can reduce our carbon footprint and make Pittsburgh a worldwide leader.”
The meeting included representatives from the William J. Clinton Foundation’s Clinton Climate Initiative, Carnegie Mellon University, and national innovators from Philips, Johnson Controls, Leotek, Lightolier, Ceramtec, Appalachian Lighting Systems, Condor Manufacturing, and Beta Lighting.
