DETROIT LAKES (KDLM/TV3) - Downtown Detroit Lakes is shining brighter with the installation of LED lights on 32 trees along Washington Ave.
Washington Ave. has become one of Detroit Lakes most energy efficient streets according to Josh Mason from Detroit Lakes Public Utilities. Two years ago the city updated all the street lights along Washington Ave. with LED lights which saves the city about $2,000 a year in energy costs. With the addition of LED lights to the trees replacing the incandescent bulbs the city had been using, Mason says the city will save close to $3,000 a year!
"The lights will appear brighter, due in-part to the LED technology", according to Mason.
