KETTERING, Ohio (WDTN) – Three local communities are involved in trying out LED street lighting.

Parts of Kettering, Miamisburg and Troy are being lighter by the LEDs. This is to save energy and money.

After the year 2016, the familiar mercury bulbs will not be replaced with the same. LED is the newer, go-to technology for lighting because it reduces energy usage by 50 to 70 percent.

It does cost more to install, but that is offset by energy savings and the 15 year life of the bulb, says Steve Bergstresser, Assistant City manager in Kettering.

Kettering is developing a survey tool for its residents through its website and social media. This is to share observations and feedback about the L E D street lighting.
