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.

Benefits
  • 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
