Green Light for LED

You may have noticed that when a new set of traffic lights goes up, it's made of lots of little LED lights. Apart from being longer-lasting, they are also much more energy efficient.

Well in Taiwan they don't muck about. They've announced that within 3 years they'll have changed over every traffic light in the country. They'll save 85% in power consumption - which is a significant saving with almost 800,000 traffic lights. After that's done, street lights are next on the agenda.

To quote from the full article ... Nations of the world, the gauntlet has been thrown down.
