As members of the LA Cleantech Kitchen Cabinet, chaired by The Groop CEO Jose Caballer, we were guests to Deputy Mayor Romel Pascual and Dir. Of Economic Development Sean Arian, for the unveiling of LA’s new LED street lighting project.

The city of LA is forging ahead in its sustainability efforts yet again! Today, Mayor Villaraigosa, former President Bill Clinton, assembled LA City officials and a select group of onlookers took part in the launch of a massive program to replace all street lights in LA with LED lighting (over 140 thousand of them!)

LEDs are 30-40% more efficient than existing street lighting last 2-4 times  longer. They’ll pay for themselves in cost savings! Yet another way sustainability makes cents.
