LUMA has replaced over 15,000 streetlights in the municipalities of Guánica, Lajas, Aguada, Maunabo, Luquillo, and Villalba in less than three months since launching its Community Streetlight Initiative. A historic undertaking to improve safety and energy efficiency in communities across Puerto Rico.

Community Streetlight Initiative

  • $1 billion in total federal funding
  • Hundreds of thousands of streetlights to be replaced

First Phase – Aguada and Manaubo

  • $30 million in federal funding
  • 9,000 streetlights replaced in Aguada and Manaubo

These projects receive funding from FEMA’s Public Assistance Program, which provides funding for reconstruction work for the recovery from major disasters or emergencies.

Additionally, both projects receive critical funding from FEMA’s 406 Hazard Mitigation Program, which hardens infrastructure to mitigate future impacts of severe weather. This hardening work increases the strength of streetlight arms, breakaway bases, concrete bases and poles by increasing the wind tolerance of all materials to 160mph.
