Testing LED Street Lights in San Francisco

Two PG&E workers examine a new LED Streetlight

Take Our Survey

PG&E and the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) have partnered to test the next generation of street lights—energy-efficient light emitting diode (LED) street lights. These lights are 40 percent more efficient than traditional high pressure sodium vapor lights, and produce a whiter, brighter light, aiding public safety.

As part of this pilot program, PG&E and the SFPUC will be testing a variety of LED lights from different manufacturers, testing such things as:

  • Energy savings
  • Lighting performance
  • Longevity

If you haven't seen the new LED street lights yet, they are installed in front of PG&E Headquarters on Beale Street, between Market and Mission. And near City Hall on Fulton, between Larkin and Hyde.

Your input is valuable to this process: we want to know what you think of these lights and whether you like them more than the traditional street lights. Thank you for taking the time to visit our site and sharing your thoughts.
