City Installing New LED Streelights


LED Streetlight

The City of Cambridge is implementing major improvements to the existing street lighting system; every City-owned streetlight will be replaced with new LED lights. Over the coming months, Cambridge residents will start to see the old “cobra head” style streetlights systematically replaced with new LED lights.

The most current, energy-efficient technology, combined with careful design and planning, is slated to reduce the City’s annual streetlight energy usage.

The contractors installing the new LED lights will be working in each City neighborhood on the respective street cleaning days, from June-August.

Visit the Electrical Department’s website for more information, including a video on the new LED lights.
