LED Conversion Program

We own, operate, and maintain 62,000+ streetlights. We were one of the first cities nationally to install smart, energy-efficient, streetlights. This innovative lighting plan is achieved by replacing the yellow sodium vapor lights with white light emitting diode (LED) lights, and an adaptive control system to provide energy efficient lighting.

  • Enable us to monitor energy consumption and allow us to dim lighting levels during late evenings
  • Reducing street light energy costs by 40% to 60% 
  • Improving lighting quality and visibility and enhance street safety
  • Ongoing maintenance savings by extending maintenance cycle for bulb replacement
  • Real-time reporting of energy usage for energy billing and communicating non-operating streetlights for improved response
  • Eliminating the use of hazardous materials contained in sodium vapor lamps
  • Preserving the night sky in late evenings for astronomical research by Lick Observatory
