Eco-friendly urban streetlights becoming major part of city planning

Implications - Both city planners and eco-focused designers are looking for different ways green elements can be infused into public spaces, and one option is through eco-friendly streetlights and lampposts. Ranging from street lamps designed to absorb solar power to those that require kinetic energy to turn on, these green designs appeal to eco-conscious consumers and also set the tone for upcoming innovations in public planning and urban design.
