LED Street Lights & Undergrounding

The Town of Palm Beach and Florida Power & Light are working together to replace the street lights in Phase 1 North and Phase 1 South as part of the Undergrounding of Utilities Project. Once the underground system is energized, the Town will have FPL replace existing street lights that are mounted to FPL utility poles with Florida Power & Light LED lights on decorative style poles.

Residents can expect the following with decorative LED street lights:

  • 22 proposed replacements in Phase 1 North
  • 76 proposed replacements in Phase 1 South
  • More efficient use of energy and longer life-span than traditional lights
  • Improved sustainability and reduced carbon footprint
  • Less light pollution and a more natural light color
  • Better color appearance of roads and roadway markings
  • Domed lighting on North Ocean Blvd. to reduce interference with sea turtle nesting
  • “Smart nodes” that alert FPL of lighting issues to improve response times
