The City of Goleta is looking forward to updating all of the streetlights within City limits to Light-Emitting Diode (LED). As of March 4, 2020, the City has acquired 1,330 of approximately 1,500 streetlights from Southern California Edison (SCE). Now that the City has acquired the streetlights, the Department of Public Works can apply for funding through an energy efficient loan program to convert High Pressure Sodium (HPS) light fixtures with LED fixtures. The improved lighting will help conserve energy and reduce streetlight maintenance efforts and costs.
To report a street light out, please go to City Assist and select “Street Light Out”. For other streetlight repair issues, please report the problem at the emergency repair link: https://tankolighting.com/goleta/.
The City is anticipating to begin converting the streetlights to LED fixtures at the end of this year after going through a public input phase to assess various LED lights. Public input will take place during a pilot study, where a specific neighborhood/area in Goleta will have their existing HPS lights converted to various types of LED lights. Staff will take this input and assess the different types of lights themselves before ultimately deciding on which manufacturer to buy the LED fixtures from, and which style of light suits the City best.
