Upgraded Streetlights Installed in Rocklin
In partnership with Pacific Gas & Electric, the city of Rocklin has opted into a program to improve public lighting. PG&E has converted streetlights across the city from older, high-pressure sodium vapor lightbulbs to state-of-the-art LED lamps.
The conversions are part of an initiative approved by the California Public Utilities Commission to promote safety and energy efficiency in public lighting. LED streetlights last four times longer than sodium vapor lamps, so the city of Rocklin will also benefit from a significant reduction in maintenance and replacement costs.
● The upgrade program includes conversions of 1,024 PG&E-owned streetlights. Converting the fixtures to LED lamps will reduce greenhouse-gas emissions from Rocklin’s streetlights by 70 percent, and result in initial annual savings of $23,041 in power costs to the city.
