Citywide LED Streetlight Conversion Program
Lowers Energy and Maintenance Costs, Enhances Traffic Safety, Cuts Greenhouse Gas Emissions
A citywide effort to convert 18,500 of Glendale's streetlights from high pressure sodium to new energy-efficient LED (Light Emitting Diode) light fixtures kicks off September 2017. With the transition to citywide implementation, Glendale is expected to experience a significant reduction in energy consumption and maintenance costs, coupled with the added benefit of improved visibility and safety on city streets.
The new LED streetlights are expected to save the city approximately $674,000 in energy and maintenance costs each year. Work will start in Glendale’s APS service areas to meet APS rebate deadline requirements and progress into SRP service areas. Project completion is currently slated for January 2018. Additional information can be found on the City Improvements page.
