The Florida Power and Light Street Lighting Retrofit Project is underway in the City of Hollywood. An update on the status of the project can be found below and includes the conversion of FPL-owned street lights to LED, the potential conversion of City-owned street lights to LED and transference to FPL ownership/maintenance.
There are 58 separate phases of this retrofit project
5,788 street lights will be converted from High-Pressure Sodium Vapor (HPSV) to Light-Emitting Diode (LED).
5,193 LED street lighting retrofits have been completed.
595 LED street lighting retrofits remain.
FPL is performing the retrofits for whichever phase the materials arrive for, as their engineering process has prescribed detailed specifications per street light.
LED retrofits for City-owned street lights/evaluation of proposed transfer of ownership from the City to FPL:
The City of Hollywood is the first municipality FPL is working with on this initiative.
FPL has been provided all requested information regarding City-owned poles (i.e. GIS locations, type(s) of pole, timer/photocell)
In coordination with the City, FPL is continuing to perform site visits for the City-owned street lights to validate which ones will qualify for this tariff.
There are approximately 3,200 lights to be reviewed to complete this study by FPL.
FPL has advised they anticipate completing their review in 8 weeks and will be ready to begin initial discussions with the City on this initiative at that time.
