Upgraded Streetlights Coming to Davis

Post Date:December 30, 2017 1:00 p.m.

In partnership with the City of Davis, PG&E has initiated a project to convert streetlights across the city from older, high-pressure sodium vapor lightbulbs to state-of-the-art LED lamps to improve public lighting. 

The conversions are part of an initiative approved by the California Public Utilities Commission to promote safety and energy efficiency in public lighting. LED streetlights last four times longer than sodium vapor lamps, which will improve reliability as well as reduced costs.

  • The upgrade will include conversion of 321 PG&E-owned streetlights with 3000K CREE RSW fixtures. Converting the fixtures to LED lamps will reduce greenhouse-gas emissions from these streetlights by over 60 percent.
  •  PG&E sent letters to residents within 200’ of each pole being upgraded.
  • The streetlight conversion project will begin in January and will take about 2 weeks to complete (pending weather). Resident may see bucket trucks belonging to the PG&E contractor, Advanced Lighting, with crews of one or two people changing the lamps. PG&E is coordinating their work with City staff and anticipate no impact on parking or traffic. Contractors will not need access to private property to complete their work.
