The city of Los Angeles, California, has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the purchase and installation of LED streetlight luminaires for an upcoming project located in the San Fernando Valley region of the city. This installation is part of the city’s ongoing effort to replace 140,000 existing streetlights, over a five year period, with energy efficient LED streetlight fixtures. The upcoming project includes 54 new streelight poles and LED fixtures, and the replacement of 22 existing high pressure sodium (HPS) streetlight fixtures with LED streetlight fixtures.
According to the bid document, the LED fixture specified for installation is manufactured by Leotek Electronics of Milpitas, California. Approved equals, which can be found here, may also be submitted if they meet the photometric performance requirements detailed in the bid document. The new LED streetlights will also be equipped with a remote wireless monitoring system from Holophane (ROAM). This system will enable the Bureau of Street Lighting to quickly respond to outages, or other problems, resulting from a streetlight failure.
The proposed project is valued at $619,000. “This project is federally funded with a local match component,” said Janet Kwan, rehabilitation projects manager for the city of Los Angeles Bureau of Street Lighting.
