Energy Efficient Streetlight Upgrade Project Commences In La Verne

The City of La Verne recently launched a citywide streetlight conversion to light emitting diode (LED) project, which will upgrade approximately 2,000 streetlights recently acquired from Southern California Edison (SCE), to energy efficient LED fixtures.

The project was awarded to Tanko Lighting of San Francisco, CA and commenced in March 2017, with an initial audit phase that identified the precise locations and characteristics of the City's existing streetlights. Actual retrofit of the streetlights to LED technology is expected to begin in March 2019 and be completed in April 2019.
  
Not only will the project reduce the City's energy use resulting in decreased energy cost, but it will also improve the color and quality of light throughout the City.
