Regional Streetlight Procurement Program (RSLPP)

LED streetlights, traffic signals, and exterior lighting present an excellent opportunity for municipalities to reduce energy use and operating costs while improving public safety. DVRPC’s Regional Street Lighting Procurement Program (RSLPP) pools the decision-making and purchasing power of municipalities so that they can confidently and cost effectively access the resources needed to complete an LED street and exterior lighting project. Municipal participants benefit from reduced product and labor pricing, a common step-by-step program timeline, access to financing, if needed, and technical and legal assistance in designing and implementing projects. DVRPC launched the first round of RSLPP in 2015, resulting in LED streetlight conversion projects across 35 municipalities in southeastern Pennsylvania. You can learn more about the 2015 RSLPP here. DVRPC will launch a second round of the RSLPP in 2018. Please contact Liz Compitello for more information.

DVRPC produced a short, easy-to-read booklet that provides an overview of the key opportunities for streetlight and traffic signal retrofits, and provides information on where to go for additional resources and funding opportunities.

U.S. DOE Municipal Solid-State Street Lighting Consortium

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Municipal Solid-State Street Lighting Consortium collects, analyzes, and shares technical information and experiences related to LED street and area lighting demonstrations. The Consortium also provides an objective resource for evaluating new products on the market intended for street lighting applications. DVRPC encourages all municipalities in the region to become a member of the consortium.
