There are almost 90,000 City-owned street lights in Calgary. The Traffic Operations division is responsible for the regular maintenance and repair of street lights that are out, damaged, flickering, or on during the day. The City has a maintenance contract with Enmax Power Services to investigate and handle these concerns

Enmax inspects reported problems within seven days, and repairs are typically done within 30 days. More complex issues such as short circuits or underground wire faults may take more than 30 days to address.
