Outdoor Lighting Accelerator Key Accomplishments and Results

The Better Buildings Outdoor Lighting Accelerator (OLA) worked with leaders from states, cities, and regional energy networks to accelerate the deployment of high performance street and area lighting in the public sector, participating in the replacement of over 1.3 million lights over two and half years starting in May 2014 and ending in December 2016. The OLA was designed to identify solutions and document approaches to overcoming the financial, technical, and regulatory barriers to system-wide replacement processes. OLA public sector partners shared effective strategies and best practices to accelerate the adoption of LED street lights to achieve greatly needed energy and electricity cost savings in their jurisdictions.
