The yellow glow of the traditional bulbs used in streetlights will be replaced with bright white LED lights once they burn out [1]

Alliant Energy will begin the transition between the traditional light bulbs used in Iowa’s streetlights to LED. Justin Foss with Alliant says they were looking for a more efficient alternative to the high pressure sodium light bulbs currently being used in Iowa’s streetlights. He says within 7 years all of the 100 watt street lights in Iowa will be LED. He shares the initial cost will be much more, but adds the LED last 20 years, compared to the traditional bulbs which last around 5 or 6.
