Good evening, San Gabriel
Last night, the City Council voted to allow Southern California Edison to begin the conversion of Edison street lights to LED fixtures. Edison recently estimated that the cost of conversion would cost $147,200. The City does not pay any additional costs to participate in the conversion, and Edison recovers the cost over a 20-year period through energy cost savings. Because the energy cost savings is greater than the recovery mechanism, the City still sees a net savings on the energy bill each month.
