Street lights

New LED street lights

BC Hydro is in the process of replacing existing street light bulbs with energy-efficient LEDs across the province. This work will reduce our carbon footprint and meet federal regulations that require all light ballasts containing Poly-Chlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) be removed by the end of 2025.

All BC Hydro street lights across the North Shore will switch to LED by the end of summer 2022.
