City of Anchorage
The City of Anchorage goes green and replaces high-pressure sodium fixtures with Cree® LEDway® streetlights to save energy and costs.
The Alaskan mountains are covered in white, but the streets of Anchorage are turning green from the City’s energy-saving initiative. The first city to embrace LED technology on a large scale, Anchorage will replace 16,000 streetlights – roughly one-quarter of the 150-watt high-pressure sodium (HPS) streetlights – with LEDway® luminaires. The installation will roll out in several phases starting with 4,200 streetlights at the intersection of Aero and Northern Lights Boulevard.
