Mayor Dickens partnered with Georgia Power to implement the Light Up the Night citywide streetlight installation and repair initiative. Light Up the Night is a unique partnership between Georgia Power and the City to increase the city’s street lighting footprint. This holistic effort will improve safety and visibility and reduce crime and traffic crashes in Atlanta’s high-need areas. In addition, the upgraded LED lights will significantly reduce the City’s energy usage and lower its annual carbon footprint by approximately 2,000 tons. Atlanta exceeded its 10,000 goal by upgrading or repairing 11,185 lights throughout the city in 2022.
