Convert all traffic lights and streetlights to LEDs.
The City will implement a comprehensive traffic and streetlight retrofit program to reduce energy use and operating costs. LED lights require significantly less energy and have longer lifespans than high-pressure sodium bulbs or other options commonly used in streetlights. The City can contract with an ESCO to perform lighting energy audits and identify the best available retrofit improvements. In most cases, the ESCO pays up-front costs associated with retrofit installation, further reducing financial. The City will also update its streetlight standards to require energy-efficient streetlights for new and replacement installations.
