The Presidential Challenge for Advanced Outdoor Lighting

Outdoor lighting consumes enough energy to power 6 million homes for a year, costing cities about $10 billion annually. That is why we have launched the Presidential Challenge for Advanced Outdoor Lighting, and tripled the DOE Better Buildings program goal of upgrading 500,000 poles, which is on track to be exceeded, to 1.5 million poles. Through the Better Buildings Outdoor Lighting Accelerator, the Presidential Challenge for Advanced Outdoor Lighting will work with dozens of municipalities to accelerate the adoption and use of high efficiency outdoor lighting, driving carbon pollution reductions in communities across the Nation. Using today's new technologies, these system-wide lighting exchanges can help local governments cut their outdoor lighting bills by 50% or more.
