Energy & Water Conservation

Measure P funds are helping to lower the City’s energy and water use!

Throughout the City, energy efficient LED lighting and smart irrigation and controllers are being installed to improve the City’s sustainability efforts. More than 16,000 LED lights are lighting up the City. Older lights used 500 kilowatts and the new LED lights use 185 kilowatts.

New sprinkler heads and nozzles are providing water and energy savings with smart technology that can be operated remotely. In addition, they have flow sensors and master valves in the ground to detect leaks. Click here to zoom in to see locations of all Measure P projects.
