Bet that title made you sing eh? It's true in a way that bright LED lights are now inspiring New Yorkers to change into greener options. Central Park has installed 1,600 LED luminaires throughout its walkways. This is a joint project between the New York Department of Transportation and the U.S. Department of Energy in order to test and demonstrate the effectivity of LED lights in terms of energy consumption and costs.

It is expected that the lights will cut down its consumption of energy up to 62% which is calculated to be $30,000 of savings every year which is really a whole lot. The lights are positioned in such a way that it will cast light in both directions, upward and downward providing safety and lighted walkways for people even at night.
