CLTC Helping to Educate Bay Area Leaders About Streetlighting Upgrades

Published: Wed, 11/26/2014

CLTC and the Bay Area Climate Collaborative (BACC) are working to educate Bay Area municipal leaders about streetlighting upgrades to reduce energy use and save money.

The two groups are organizing a workshop in San Rafael on strategies for successful LED street and parking lighting deployments. There will be opportunities for public works staff, transportation directors and engineers, and sustainability leaders to engage with other municipal leaders, lighting experts and manufacturers engaged in LED street and parking lighting upgrades. Presentations will focus on topics including case studies of local installations, deployment strategies, considerations for product purchases, adaptive lighting strategies, and tools and resources to enable action.

It is the fifth in a series of workshops that CLTC and BACC, a public-private initiative that works to accelerate the clean energy economy, have organized to help local governments take action. Previous workshops were held in Hayward, Redwood City and Berkeley.

The workshop in San Rafael scheduled for December 11 is being postponed until early 2015.
