Solana Beach is the first city in San Diego County to complete a retrofit of all of its approximately 500 city-owned streetlights, a measure that was part of a $1.4 million project to trim its annual energy consumption by more than 350,000 kilowatt-hours.

Trish Willhite of Chevron Energy Solutions, the company commissioned to facilitate the project, awarded the city with a plaque on Feb. 13 to commend the completion.

Willhite said the streetlight retrofitting alone accounts for 85 percent of savings for the project, which also involved installing new efficient lighting fixtures, a new “cool roof” and more efficient heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) at City Hall. Upgrades were also made to the Fire Station and Marine Safety buildings.

The city estimates savings each year to be at least $40,000.
