My understanding (no research done) is that if there are strobe lights
installed, the towers do not have to be painted red/white.  Therefore, many
tower companies are installing strobes to cut down on maintenance (painting)
of their towers.  A night/day system which incorporates strobes during the
day and red lights at night should be adequate since no one can see the
red/white paint at night anyways.

I will say, as a pilot, I do appreciate the white strobes during the day.
