LED Streetlight Project Updates
The City of Avondale will be converting the existing High-Pressure Sodium (HPS) streetlights to Light-Emitting Diodes, or LED's. Transitioning to LED streetlights has several direct benefits to the City and it's taxpayers, which include: reduced annual operating and maintenance expenses and increased nighttime visibility to promote a safer community.
