While you may have seen AL Power’s signature utility trucks repairing stoplights and streetlights before, you might not know that these lights are actually owned by the utility provider, and that they’re getting an upgrade. Alabama Power is on track to replace the city of Birmingham’s street lighting with cool, clear LED lights, shifting away from the typical gas-discharge street lighting characterized by warm light.

Traveling through Hoover, on HWY 31, will become brighter in 2017.
So buckle up and don’t worry about turn on those high beams, because the city is getting more street lights.
