New LED street lights
BC Hydro is in the process of replacing existing light bulbs with energy-efficient LEDs to comply with federal regulations. All BC Hydro Street lights across the North Shore will switch to LED by the end of summer 2022.
Street lights are switching to LEDs for much the same reason that people choose LEDs for their homes: they use far less energy, are more reliable, last longer, and are more sustainable. LED street lights also help improve public safety by increasing the visibility of sidewalks and roads at night.
You may start noticing new LED street lights in your neighbourhood. Visit BC Hydro's website at the link below to learn more.
