The City of Oakland has completed converting 30,333 street lights to light-emitting diode (LED), in a project started in 2013 and completed in 2014. Replacement of the old streetlight fixtures with new LED fixtures provides a better quality of light to enhance public safety. In addition, the conversion project saves resources as the LED technology is more energy efficient and the bulbs have a longer lifespan. Learn more about the project on the City of Oakland’s website.
