To commemorate Earth Day 2012, New York City’s MTA (Mass Transit Authority) flips the switch on Clear-Vu Lighting’s energy and money saving LED work site underground lights, saving the MTA $500,000 a year.
“It’ll last about 20 times as long, it will provide twice the light output to what they’re currently using and it’ll do it at a lot lower temperature which means it’s a much safer product for the people who are working there, for the people commuting,” said Clear View Plastics Vice President Daniel Lax.
