Public Assistance Requested to Help Goleta Choose New LED Streetlights
Source: City of Goleta
The City of Goleta has installed new Light-Emitting Diode (LED) streetlights as part of a pilot study to test four different types of LED streetlights. The goal of the program will be to evaluate and select one LED streetlight to be used for the City’s LED Street Lighting Project that will replace more than 1,300 High-Pressure Sodium (HPS) streetlight fixtures with new energy efficient LED streetlights. The new lights will save the City money, require less maintenance, provide clearer lighting and are better for the environment.
City of Goleta Deputy Public Works Director James Campero said, “The Department of Public Works is excited to move into the pilot study and design phase of the LED Street Lighting Project. We encourage residents to review the various LED streetlights installed with the pilot study and provide feedback. This will help staff pick the best LED streetlight to use.”
Here is how you can participate. Through the rest of January, go to the Cannon Green Drive neighborhood in western Goleta and check out the fixtures on display along Davenport Road, Freeman Place, and Elmhurst Place as shown in the attached map. The lights will come on around sunset. Once you have had a chance to check out the different types of streetlights, make sure to give us your feedback. Go tohttps://www.surveymonkey.com/r/GoletaLED.
