The street light system is comprised of over 19,700 lights situated throughout the city. Miami Valley Lighting (a division of the Dayton Power & Light Company) owns approximately 14,400 lights and bills the City for the capital, energy, maintenance and repair costs of those lights. The City owns and maintains the remaining 5,300 lights. The plan includes upgrades of the lights on existing City-owned poles from high pressure sodium fixtures to energy efficient light emitting diode (LED) technology. LED lights consume less energy than their high pressure sodium counterparts and have more than double the useful life. Conversion to LED lights is also good for the environment by reducing the City’s carbon footprint. The assessment also covers the cost of operating, maintaining and repairing the street light system.
