BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Close to 13,000 streetlights will be getting replaced with new energy-efficient LED lights in our area, lowering the city's energy costs by more than $710,000 a year.
PG&E and the city of Bakersfield will install 12,865 new LED lights on major city streets and in residential areas by the end of June.
"LED lights will make our streets safer and offer significant long-term savings to the taxpayer," Nick Fidler, Public Works Director said.
"The LED lights require less maintenance than traditional street lights, which will allow City crews to address other critical needs throughout the community."
