It is hard to imagine an urban city of the future that does not employ LED lighting. Larger cities have not moved as quickly to utilize the technology; it is the smaller, developing cities like Detroit, Oakland and Pittsburgh that are leading the way. Earlier this week, Detroit was commended by Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz for its choice to utilize LED lighting in the coming years. LED lights are a godsend to cities like Detroit that are looking to rebuild and thinking about long-term strategies to that end. Cities like Detroit are short on cash, and some might be hesitant to invest in the high initial cost of LEDs; but savings over the long run make it a smarter fiscal decision.
