West Hollywood is going all-in on LED.
The city announced Monday they will begin updating all streetlights in the city with the energy-efficient technology, which uses up to 40 percent less electricity and costs less to operate.
The retrofitting project will begin on the city’s east side and work its way west. They’re expecting to take less than an hour at each location, so parking and traffic disruption should be minimal.
More on this bright idea from the city:
The City of West Hollywood is dedicated to sustainability and preserving the environment. One of the City of West Hollywood’s core values is Respect for the Environment and the City has a strong record of developing and instituting progressive and forward-thinking environmental policies.
The City is currently engaging the community in its people-centered Climate Action and Adaptation Plan (CAAP) — an effort called “WeHo Climate Action” — to champion local actions needed to meet the challenges of a changing climate. Although climate change is a global problem, the City recognizes that strategies to adapt to a changing climate are best enacted at the local level.
The plan will establish more aggressive greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets, obtain feedback from those who are most impacted by climate change, empower the community to play an active role in creating a sustainable future, and support a vibrant and sustainable city for current and future generations.
