The City of Alameda Public Utilities Board, which oversees city-owned Alameda Municipal Power, will meet Monday evening. Among the topics to be discussed is an update on a streetlight conversion program.

An Alameda Municipal Power pilot project to test Light Emitting Diode (LED) streetlights, as a possible replacement for existing High Pressure Sodium (HPS) lamps, have suggested that the new technology could produce energy savings of 45 percent.

In 2010, the utility began the pilot project, converting ten HPS streetlights on Clement Avenue to LED fixtures, and plans to start a city-wide conversion program in 2015.

According to the report to the board, there are a total of 5,463 streetlights in the City of Alameda owned and operated by Alameda Municipal Power, of which approximately 5,200, are High Pressure Sodium lamps. The rest are fluorescent (1.69 percent), induction (1.28 percent), and LED (0.19 percent).
