Street Lighting

Streetlight Conversion Consultation - Have your say!

In 2021, BC Hydro is planning on converting all existing streetlights that they own from High Pressure Sodium (HPS) lights to Light Emitting Diodes (LED) lights. The new lights will use less power and should last longer. The new streetlights will generate a different colour light which will change lighting in your neighbourhood so it is important that you understand the upcoming change and provide guidance as to what you want your street to look like after dark. BC Hydro has created a toolkit regarding LED streetlights which can be accessed by the following link: Streetlight Toolkit

As you will see, it explains the different types of lights available and provides images of what the street looks like with the LED lighting. It is strongly advisable that those filling in their community’s questionnaire review the toolkit prior to providing their opinions. It is also hoped that in the near future, the RDMW will be able to show where streetlights have already been converted so that those interested can observe various LED street lights first hand. This will be dependent upon BC Hydro giving the information to the RDMW. Once the maps have been received from BC Hydro, they will be uploaded for viewing.

Please use the link below to access the Survey Monkey questionnaire that allows you give your input regarding the LED conversion of Sointula’s street lights. Since the questionnaire refers to the street lights by their ID#, a series of seven images have been created that show street light locations with the associated ID# for each light. An overall reference map is available to help find the image that covers the part of Sointula you are interested in. If you have any question, please email them to
