Saving Money for Taxpayers

“By converting our streetlights to LED technology, we are modernizing Chicago’s infrastructure, creating new jobs and saving taxpayers more than $100 million over the next decade. Once the new smart lighting system is operational, we will also be notified when lights go out—and this will eliminate the need for residents to call 311 to report outages.”
