Why more cities haven't invested in systems like the EcoLight Lamppost suggests is beyond me. It affords particularly appealing benefits that cater to both man and nature.
First of all, Daniel Pera's design integrates LED lights with incredible longevity. Each streetlight could effectively shine for 70,000 hours -- only ever between sunset and sunrise -- making it unnecessary to require maintenance more than once every 20 odd years. Funds and labor can be saved with this scheme and neighborhood will never be left in the dark.
The EcoLight Lamppost is independent in another way, made possible by the solar panels attached to the angled top of the fixture. It can convert the sun's rays into twice as much energy as it requires to run nightly, therefore it draws no electricity out of the urban grid.
