How much energy does one street light consume overnight?

    According to the U.S. Department of Energy, lamps that light streets and highways use approximately 2 percent of the nation’s electricity. However, I’ve seen solar powered lamps used to light parking lots, and my guess is that their popularity will grow as solar energy becomes more mainstream and affordable. Check out the article below from the Wall Street Journal that discusses a new “adaptive lighting” technique that is designed to save a great deal of energy (and money) over time.
