      Also upgrading the incandescent lighting to energy efficient LED lighting powered by A-Grade Monocrystalline Solar Cells, would be a visible benefit to making Vancouver the Greenest City by 2020. These will make a visible statement that our city is Green. Great for applications in dog parks, bicycle/walking trails, parking lots and streets with no hyrdo grid access.

        LED street lights are not only cheaper to operate and last 10 times longer. They can be powered by solar and/or wind turbine power to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and get us on the path to carbon neutral.

        They can be installed in parking lots, bike/walking trails, dog parks as a visible benefit we are the Greenest city in the world by 2020.
