Information from the City of Pleasanton—
The City of Pleasanton will host a public meeting to unveil a new LED street light retrofit project on Thursday, October 17, 2013 at 6:30 p.m. The meeting will be held in the Remillard conference room at the City’s Operations Services Center at 3333 Busch Road in Pleasanton.
Over the next several months, a $1.6 million project will begin to convert more than 5,400 High Pressure Sodium Vapor “cobra head” street light fixtures with new Light Emitting Diode (LED) energy efficient street fixtures within the city. LED lights have a longer operational life, are more energy efficient, emit zero UV emissions, and focus light more efficiently to a desired location.
The conversion is part of Pleasanton’s Climate Action Plan, and offers both financial and environmental benefits—savings of up to 60% in maintenance and electricity costs are projected. Operations Services Director Daniel Smith anticipates annual savings of $200,000 from the new program, which will be funded through a low interest loan from the California Energy Commission and a one-time conversion incentive rebate from PG&E.
