How This Service Works
This service helps customers justify street light replacement by providing projected savings calculations up-front and a complete turnkey solution thereafter to offer cost savings when compared with the expense of using city personnel or city-acquired subcontracted labor.
Customers who own and maintain street lights in the PG&E service area and are on the LS-2 fixed pricing schedule
Customers who replace or upgrade their existing street lights with new PG&E approved LED street lights are eligible for new lower pricing and product rebates. Learn more about these potential incentives
PG&E subcontracts the installation labor to qualified union and/or union-friendly electric contractors, using a competitive bidding process. Customers can expect installation to be completed within 90 to 120 days (completion times may vary due to conditions such as high traffic or limited work hours permitted by a city). Each city is responsible for securing required permits.
PG&E handles all solicitation of material and contractor bids, and completes all the applicable rebate applications and rate change forms. In addition, PG&E updates the necessary Geographic Information Systems (GIS) data, and gathers data and documents for the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) reports.
Customers receive a price up-front that includes all applicable and known project costs to help eliminate possible overages. The project price includes material, distributor and shipping costs, sales tax, installation, inspection, PG&E administration costs, and project management costs. (Several factors will influence final pricing, including the size and quantity of LED lights, traffic patterns, geographic location, required permits, etc.).
