President Obama Wants More Efficient Outdoor Lighting
The White House wants to make outdoor lighting cheaper and more energy efficient. Outdoor lighting consumes enough energy to power 6 million homes in 2015. That adds up to $10 billion each year. The White House looks for ideas through its Presidential Challenge for Advanced Outdoor Lightning. It said technology can cut lighting bulls in half but using newer, more efficient technology. Some cities are already using LED light bulbs. That's saving them as much as 70 percent in annual funds.
