Boston spends 18 million dollars each year to operate and maintain 67,484 street lights. This project analyzed cost saving methods and technologies for the City of Boston to increase energy efficiency, decrease light pollution and maintenance cost. Researching lamp technology and a light level GIS map, created through fieldwork and surveying generated our findings. A rollout plan was created suggesting implementation of cut-offs on high wattage cobra head fixtures, saving a percentage of money to later purchase efficient green technologies.
