To report a street light that isn't working or that needs repair, contact us directly at 916-727-4770 or use the service request form to submit a request on-line.
Converting to LED Street Lights
Map of Project Area
The conversions will reduce energy usage of the lights by approximately 50-60%, resulting in a proportionate reduction of electricity costs. In addition, the life expectancy of the new fixtures is 15 years (3 times longer than the expectancy of the existing fixtures), significantly reducing time and material costs to maintain the lights. Conversion to LEDs will provide clearer, and more consistent light quality making the street safer as fewer outages will occur due to the increased life expectancy and a more consistent distribution of light will be present resulting in fewer dark spots.
The Auburn Boulevard conversions were scheduled at night in order to minimize traffic impacts on these heavily traveled roads. After completion, approximately 20% of the city’s street light inventory are now energy efficient.
