Syracuse officials today unveiled details of an ambitious plan to buy 17,507 streetlights from National Grid and convert the city’s entire network to a “smart” LED system.

The new LED lights would be cheaper and more efficient than the existing ones, and would let officials control the brightness in an area for public safety or during special events. An interconnected streetlight grid would also put Syracuse on the forefront of smart technology, paving the way for everything from snowfall monitoring to self-driving cars.
