Rossmoor Community Services District is excited to announce the installation of new LED street lighting scheduled for February 18, 2019. As part of an incentive program offered by Southern California Edison (SCE), the District will replace the High Pressure Sodium Vapor (HPSV) streetlights in all residential tracts and arterial streets with newer Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology. Conversion to the new LED technology will result in a savings to the District due to reduced energy usage.

The Rossmoor Board of Directors approved using 3000Kelvin (K), 70 Wattage (W) equivalent LED street lights for residential, 3000K , 100W around schools and select thoroughfares and 300K, 150W equivalent on arterial streets. The new fixtures will provide whiter and brighter lighting compared to the District’s existing HPSV lights.

In 2018 the District entered into an agreement with SCE to implement the lighting conversion program. Under this program, SCE will replace all SCE-owned streetlights with LED light fixtures with no up-front costs.

Southern California Edison owns and maintains 796 streetlights in Rossmoor. The improved LED lighting technology will provide better illumination throughout the community resulting in cost and energy savings as well as enhanced safety for residents.

After installation, please contact the Rossmoor Community Services District at 562-430-3707 to report any immediate issues with flickering and the District will promptly notify Southern California Edison for repair.
