This should shed some light on the matter.

Surrey council voted Monday to replace 1,475 streetlights.

The City of Surrey’s engineering department asked council to authorize the purchase of 1,475 light-emitting diode streetlight fixtures from the Provincial Corporate Supply Arrangement to replace existing high-intensity discharge streetlights to the tune of $795,000.

Scott Neuman, Surrey’s general manager of engineering, noted that his department maintains 33,000 streetlights and of these, 16,000 high-intensity discharge fixtures need to be replaced with LED fixtures.

Council voted on this Monday at its regular council meeting.
