The city's Streetlight Improvement project is replacing damaged and end-of-life streetlights with LED fixtures. LED technology provides consistent illumination and a more concentrated light distribution pattern allowing technicians to direct the light onto roadways, sidewalks, and crosswalks in the public right-of-way. The fixtures have a high color rendering index (CRI), which means the fixture displays colors more accurately, enhancing community safety and improving visibility for drivers. LED fixtures are International Dark Sky (IDS) compliant and reduce the amount of light expended into the sky and onto private property. The fixtures have built-in photometric options and do not require external directional shields.

LED streetlights are energy-efficient and consume less electricity, resulting in significant energy savings for the city and its residents. The fixtures can last up to10 times longer than conventional streetlights which helps reduce maintenance costs. Cities throughout the Valley, and local power companies, are converting streetlights to LED technology. Scottsdale has more than 14,000 streetlights; the city maintains 9,000 of these fixtures and has converted approximately 3,000 to LED technology. Residents can expect to see more fixtures converted to LED technology in the coming years.
