GPS-Enabled Lighting to Save Oceanside, California, More than Half a Million Dollars Annually

Energy-efficient lighting is a part of a greater initiative—the Green Oceanside campaign, which was established to educate residents, businesses and visitors and to implement programs for energy efficiency, recycling, water conservation, energy conservation and more.

Funded by a $5 million government grant, the Oceanside Public Works department was driven to complete this lighting project because of its potential to realize large energy and maintenance savings.

Replacing legacy high pressure sodium (HPS) street lights is expected to reduce annual carbon dioxide emissions by 1.7 million pounds, which is equal to removing nearly 150 cars from the road or adding more than 200 acres of forest.
