GP&L’s LED Streetlight Upgrades on Schedule
In its fourth year, GP&L’s seven-year project to convert City-owned streetlights to light-emitting diodes (LEDs) is on track. Currently, 55 percent of GP&L’s 16,000 streetlights have been converted.
The project, which is targeted for completion in 2022, began in south Garland and is working its way north. Median lights are replaced first, with the installation of residential lights a year later. See map below for conversion schedule.
LED lights can reduce streetlight energy consumption by as much as 70 percent, are expected to last longer – up to 10 years – than traditional lighting, and provide the community with a modern, consistent appearance.
Along with the new lights, GP&L is using an operations management system that immediately notifies crews of LED streetlight outages or issues.
These streetlight upgrades are in the GP&L service area only.
