LED lights have been installed on this Tuxedo street.

The City of Calgary is always looking for ways to reduce electricity consumption and provide quality lighting on city roadways.

Based on an assessment of available technologies, LED (light emitting diode) lighting has been identified as the best-fit option for Calgary’s roads. Council has approved a city-wide retrofit of 80,000 streetlights between 2015-2018.

City-wide retrofit (e2 Street Lighting Program)

  • The City will retrofit 80,000 streetlights as a part of the e2 Street Lighting Program.
  • Over 45,000 LED installations have been done as of August 2016.
  • There are approximately 90,000 streetlights in Calgary and 80,000 will be completed by the end of 2018. The remaining 10,000 do not qualify for replacement b​ecause they are decorative and an LED equivalent may not be available that is economical to the project.

LED lighting FAQ

Feedback from the public will be solicited throughout the program via 311 and Twitter (@yyctransport), and will be used to determine adjustments and improvements to lighting levels.

Benefits of LED street lighting

LED lighting is now roughly the same cost as the standard high pressure sodium lights, but offers a number of longer-term benefits:

  • Reduces electricity consumption.
  • Provides better quality street lighting, making objects appear clearer and more defined.
  • Reduces the amount of “spilled” or wasted light, ensuring light is focused on roads and sidewalks, where it is most useful to drivers and pedestrians.
