Citing Syracuse, NY as an example, the replacement of 299 traffic lights is expected to save $225,000 worth of energy each year. (related .pdf article about efficient traffic lights)

While hybrid vehicles give individuals an opportunity to contribute to energy independence, it's nice to see the government taking action, too.
