City to convert 7,205 streetlights to Smart technology LED streetlight fixtures


Starting the last week of September, the City is converting 7,205 streetlights to Smart technology Light Emitting Diode (LED) streetlight fixtures, which will reduce energy use, electricity costs and maintenance costs.

It’s estimated that the conversion to Smart technology LED fixtures will reduce annual electricity costs by 54% or by $650,000, reduce maintenance costs by 80% or by $187,000 and reduce the City’s annual electricity consumption for streetlights by 70% or by 3.6 million kilowatt hours.
