To coordinate efforts initiated by a number of cities who are pursuing the evaluation of LED street lighting products, the DOE has decided to form a municipal solid-state street lighting consortium. The consortium will collect, analyze, and share technical information as well as experiences related to LED street lighting demonstrations.

Membership will be open to municipalities, utilities, and energy efficiency organizations )more details will follow soon). The DOE is working toward a Sept. 2009 launch date. For more information go to:
