Input wanted on streetlights from Del Mar residents

The City of Del Mar received a $25,000 Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block  Grant from the Energy Commission to retrofit the City’s existing high pressure sodium streetlights with new energy efficient induction lights.  While the majority of  the 73 streetlights in Del Mar are owned and maintained by SDG&E, and therefore do not qualify for the program, 32 Del Mar-owned street lights do qualify to be  retrofit at no cost to the City.

Two high-pressure sodium streetlights have already been swapped out with energy efficient induction luminaries as a means of facilitating citizen feedback on the proposed lighting upgrade.  One of the sample streetlights is located at the southwest corner of 9th Street and Camino del Mar and the other is immediately north of the railroad crossing along Coast Boulevard. Residents  are encouraged to visit the sites and contact Public Works Deputy Director Joe  Bride at 858-755-3294 or email jbride@delmar.ca.us with any comments or questions they may have about the upcoming project.
