We’re testing a state-of-the-art street lighting system comprising light-emitting diode (LED) street lights and wireless monitoring and control equipment. The new remote controls and ultra-efficient LED fixtures, which replace high-pressure sodium street light fixtures, have been installed in these neighborhoods:
Our public survey period ended at close of business on February 24, 2014. Many, many thanks to everyone who participated in the online survey and live demonstration events. You can read a comprehensive analysis of the survey results here.
Residents and businesses in the test areas were briefed on the installations during community meetings last winter. The new, ultra-efficient LED street lights will consume 50% less energy and burn three-to-four times longer than existing lamps. In addition, the LED’s will be:
- monitored and controlled remotely (removing the need for members of the
public to report broken lamps)
equipped with an adaptive lighting feature which allows for energy-saving off-peak hour adjustment of street light levels
powered by 100% greenhouse gas-free Hetch Hetchy hydroelectric energy (just like all City street lights)
Thanks for your support! Please feel free to contact us with questions or suggestions at: LED@sfwater.org.
(NOTE: A third LED street light system with wireless controls, installed downtown on Pine Street between Davis and Montgomery, was not included in the online survey or live demonstration events. Live, on-site demonstrations of the Irving and Washington Street installations took place on January 22 and 23, 2014.)
