Although we do not expect to see it for another year or two, we love EL Safety Technology and want to find out all the new happenings of it.

Waterbury, VT is taking that initiative one step further and actually replacing all the Street Lights into LED Street Lights. This major step is not cheap. It is costing the city about $500k to make the change, but they are looking towards the future, in terms of electrical costs, replacement and repairs, and not just the initial investment.
We should soon start to see more and more cities jumping on this eco-friendly train which will not only stimulate our economy, but also provide a new era of eco-friendly operations across the US.

Have you ever heard of the Japanese music sensation group, Norazo? We haven't either. But wait till you get a load of this video. I'm not sure whether its cool, or makes me very, very uncomfortable.
