This is a great investment. Congrats to Ptown for doing this.

I've also seen LED street lights emerging in Pleasanton, using a fraction of the power of the previous technology. Smart lighting is a good thing, it adjusts to available daylight, occupancy, etc.

Now they need to invest in drug sniffing dogs to sweep the library parking lot and keep the students who use the library safe.
