Rancho Verde uses a first for Chicago: public street lighting using induction lamps. Induction lamps are considered “green” for two reasons: they have a long productive life as compared to incandescent bulbs meaning less resources are used to maintain them and less waste is generated over time, and they are up to 4 times as energy efficient as the standard street lighting systems. In addition, these lamps produce a good quality light that reduces the need for additional lamps.
