Go green. Save money.

 

Highland Park, Michigan's declining population of 10,000 could no longer afford street lights after needing to increase water and sewer bills by $1000/resident. The city went dark as the lights were turned off. Today they have "smart" off-grid solar powered street lights with no operating costs.
