Holland Tunnel To Get LED lighting | NJ.com

I've been wondering when we'll start to see these in MTA properties.  Beyond energy savings, the long life of LEDs yields savings on maintenance costs. 

"Over the next several months, workers will replace the [Holland] tunnel's 3,336 fluorescent lamps with more energy efficient light emitting diode, or LED, fixtures lights, the Port Authority said.

The new lights are projected to save the agency $250,000 a year, while making the tunnel's interior brighter."

I won't be sorry to see those soul-crushing fluorescent fixtures go the way of the dinosaur.
