More Oroville street lamps converted to LEDs
energy-saving LEDs. City engineer Rick Walls said the crews, contracted by PG&E, were swapping out about 100 per day. He said the crews were working faster than the city could do in-house. The LEDs, or light-emitting diodes, are replacing high-pressure sodium lights. Compared with the old lights, which cast an orange tone, the LEDs produce a better quality light with better distribution over the street.
