Unalaska to install LED street lights 

From KUCB Radio: The (Unalaska) Department of Public Utilities recently won a $153,000 grant from the Alaska Energy Authority to buy LED street lights. Director of Public Utilities Dan Winters said the new lamps will use 75 percent less power than the current 400 watt bulbs but still give out the same amount of light.  Winters said his department is still looking for good lights for this environment. “We’ve been testing LED lights for quite a while out here and we’ve had a few of them that we’ve taken down and sent back and said these aren’t going to work with our weather environment.
