PALMDALE – The city of Palmdale recently completed the purchase of nearly 18,000 streetlights throughout the city from Southern California Edison.
The purchase will facilitate a conversion from the existing High Pressure Sodium (HPS) lighting to more energy efficient, longer lasting Light Emitting Diode (LED) lighting. The conversion will provide higher lighting that lasts up to five times longer than the current HPS lights.
The city completed an LED light demonstration in February on City Ranch Road, the road leading to the Antelope Valley Landfill, where Palmdale residents were encouraged to view the lights and provide input on their quality.
Streetlight outages may now be reported on the city’s website http://www.cityofpalmdale.org/Street-Light-Outage, by calling 661-267-5300 or by downloading the MyWaste app.
Residents are invited to learn more about the streetlight project and the LED light conversion process by attending the Palmdale City Council’s workshop on at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 17, at the Council Chamber, located at 38230 Sierra Highway.
For more information call 661-267-5300.
