Taiwan has just announced that within the next three years they plan to convert all of their traffic lights to LED.  For an estimated $7 million (US) the project will convert 420,000 lights, saving appoximately 85% of power consumption.

Once this has been completed, they plan on spending about half the above price to replace their street lights.
