Street Lighting

LED street lights have numerous benefits for communities, including increased safety, light pollution and energy reduction, and cost-effectiveness over the long-term. In some instances, however, the conversion to LED street lights can be challenging, particularly when the look and feel of a neighborhood is unexpectedly impacted. This is sometimes complicated by a mixed ownership structure where some of the street lights are owned by the utility and some are owned by the municipality.

streetlight-photosElevate supports municipalities and utilities in the planning and implementation of smart street lighting by:

  • Providing street lighting inventories
  • Assisting with the selection of appropriate upgrades
  • Managing energy efficiency incentives
  • Quantifying the environmental benefits
  • Conducting stakeholder outreach and education
