According to, the City Council of Santa Ana, California has recently approved a recommendation that was submitted by the Department of Public Works to replace existing streetlights with new high efficiency street lights.  The city currently uses high pressure sodium streetlights that consume approximately 240 watts of electricity.  These will be replaced with high efficiency LED streetlights that only consume 140 watts of electricity.  An award from the US Department of Energy’s Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant is being used to fund this project so tax payers don’t have to worry about an increase in taxes.  Many Santa Ana moving companies are thrilled about this as they sped a great deal of time on the road and will now have over 250 new bright LEDs to light their way!
