World’s Largest LED Streetlight Retrofit Completed in Los Angeles

The enormous street light swap-out of 141,089 brand-new LED street lights was finished in June. The second phase of Los Angeles’ LED replacement program will see the retrofit of about 70,000 decorative street lamps located throughout the city. Navigant (formerly Pike) Research recently predicted that shipments of LED street lights will increase from fewer than 3 million in 2012 to more than 17 million in 2020. Los Angeles is certainly not alone in making the switch to LED street lighting. In March, the City of Las Vegas finished outfitting 42,000 street lights with LED fixtures. One month later, the City of Austin, Texas, announced plans to install 35,000 LED street lights. And, in December of last year, CPS Energy said it would install 20,000 LED street lights in San Antonio.
