In order to reduce energy consumption and the state’s carbon footprint, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) has called for a 60–80% reduction in lighting energy consumption by 2020. Answering this call, UC Davis established the Smart Lighting Initiative (SLI), an effort to reduce campus-wide lighting electricity consumption at least 60% below 2007 levels. The first phase of this program included a large-scale deployment of over 1,500 network-controlled LED streetlights, area lights, post-tops, and wall packs. The “ultra-smart” lighting installation has reduced annual energy use by an estimated 1,231,758kWh, saving $120,909 annually in energy and maintenance costs.
