LED Traffic Lights Have Winter Problems

Many traffic lights across the state were recently installed with LED lights.  The LED lights have many benefits over incandescent lights.  The most important of benefits is the ability to reduce energy consumption and save money.  The reduced energy consumption of the new lights have produced a side effect that is having many officials scrambling to find a solution.

The problem is that ice and snow are beginning to build up on these lights.  This was never an issue with incandescent bulbs as incandescent bulbs give off a lot of heat as a part of its inefficient energy use. The snow would normally melt,  however the new LED lights do not give enough heat to melt the snow.  Officials have stated that they are attempting to find a solution to this problem as soon as possible.
