Title
CONSIDER APPROVAL OF A LS-1 OPTION E AGREEMENT WITH SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA EDISON (SCE) TO REPLACE SCE OWNED AND MAINTAINED HIGH PRESSURE SODIUM VAPOR (HPSV) STREET LIGHTS WITH LIGHT-EMITTING DIODE (LED) STREET LIGHTS (CITY COUNCIL)

Body
I. SUMMARY

The LS-1 Option E tariff is a program that allows SCE to replace High Pressure Sodium Vapor (HPSV) street lights with more efficient Light Emitting Diode (LED) street lights with no out-of-pocket capital cost to cities and counties. Instead, initial capital costs will be amortized through energy cost savings over a 20 year period (Exhibit No. 1).
There are 1,100 SCE owned and maintained street lights that are under account directly with the City and those are the lights that the LS-1 Option E Agreement will cover. The SCE produced analysis shows an annual net savings of approximately $34,600 in energy bills during the 20-year repayment period and $59,800 per year after 20 years.
If Council approves the Agreement, the conversion work is anticipated to start around March-April 2021.
