WILLMAR -- Officials of Willmar Municipal Utilities are continuing to study replacing high-pressure sodium streetlights with costlier but energy-efficient LED streetlights. LED stands for light-emitting diode.

The utility this year bought three Phillips-brand LED units and placed one at each of three residential locations. Also, the utility received a sample GE-brand LED unit that was placed near a Phillips unit on 23rd Street Southeast for comparison purposes Sept. 26.
