Qualified LED Street Light Fixtures

Only well-designed LED products using the latest in LED technology that are appropriate for the application will offer the energy savings, lighting quality, and lifetime benefits sought. To help customers select quality LED street light fixtures, PG&E has worked with the U.S. Department of Energy and other utility partners to develop stringent performance standards. To qualify for the PG&E LED Street Light Program rebate, LED products must provide a variety of independent tests that help ensure they will deliver as promised.

The Design Lights Consortium (DLC) maintains a listing of all non-Energy Star LED products meeting the performance standards required of our programs. In addition to these specifications, PG&E requires that LED Street Light products also meet the following service requirements:

  • Photo Controls: Fixtures must be socket ready for electronic type photo controls meeting American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standard C136.10 with a turn on value of 1.0 foot-candles and a turn off value of 1.5 foot-candles. Electro-mechanical or thermal type photo controls are not acceptable.
  • Manufacturer Labeling: Wattage Stickers identifying the fixture technology (LED) and total fixture wattage that follows ANSI Standard C136.15, already used by nearly all manufacturers and customers for identification of light types currently included in the standard.

If you are a manufacturer wishing to submit LED Street Light products for inclusion in PG&ampE's program, please review information on the DLC's Manufacturer Application Overview and then follow the requirements as outlined on the DLC's Manufacturer Application Process.

Customers who install non-qualified LED fixtures will still be able to switch to the lower LS-2 rate schedule, but will not be eligible for the rebates.

Customer wishing to install Induction Street Lighting may be eligible for both the lower LS-2 rate as well as a calculated incentive. See information on our Customized Retrofit Incentives page for information.
