Alabama Power has begun replacing old streetlights in Mobile as part of a joint project to increase neighborhood security and visibility.

Alabama Power and the city of Mobile announced in June an agreement to replace more than 20,000 streetlights with LED fixtures. The new lights are brighter and require less maintenance than the older, high-pressure sodium, mercury-vapor and metal halide streetlights.

“When we talk about public safety as our No. 1 priority, we believe that lighting has a lot to do with that,” said Mobile Mayor Sandy Stimpson. “This lighting is going to make a big difference.”
