Streetlight Services

Southern has been a market leader in delivering turnkey solutions to municipal, educational and commercial clients for more than 40 years.  Having designed and built one of the first city-wide LED streetlight systems for the City of Chula Vista in 2011, we have pioneered many industry firsts, including:


  • GPS Audits -- Utilization of GPS Mapping Systems to audit and build an accurate map-based database of entire city systems, reconciling records between cities and local utilities


  • Advanced Lighting Control Research – Organized and participated in the research and evaluation of multiple lighting control manufacturers to understand the technical and financial impact of emerging dimming technologies.  Brought together San Diego Gas & Electric, The cities of Can Diego and Chula Vista and the California Lighting Technology Center to conduct this study.


  • Adaptive Controls -- Pioneered the design, installation and commissioning of advanced adaptive controls for municipal environments, with more  than 10,000 commissioned lighting control points


  • New Streetlight Tariff Design and Implementation – Worked closely with local municipalities and San Diego Gas & Electric to identify, develop and file one of the first-ever individually metered streetlight tariffs in the United States.  This provides the framework for cities to freely build s smart city technology communications backbone to not only control lights, but deliver advanced solutions including small cells, parking systems and emergency traffic routing.

“Southern Contracting continues to establish Best Practices in streetlight design, providing warm, well-lit cityscapes using the latest in LED technology.”
