Columbus keeps old streetlights on

Columbus officials have embraced alternative fuels, recycling, rain gardens and other "green" trends, but they are sticking with old-school streetlights that some say contribute to climate change. A recent test of LED lights and others that require less electricity found that the energy savings were offset by higher maintenance and up-front costs, said Department of Public Utilities spokeswoman Laura Young Mohr. Some of the lights burned out within two months, she said. The test was conducted in North Linden, on streets east of Karl and Cooke roads.
