'[TECH] Why are street lights on, in daytime?'

I noticed that here in Phoenix, a great number of street lights (especially,
in public parks) are on during the day, for months at a time. They may be on
year-round, I can't remember if they're on in the summer.

I was at this park last weekend, and the lights were on during the day
(notice that the picture was taken last year). There is at least 100+ of
these lights at this one park, and I've seen them on in other parts of the
city.

Some sort of load balancing?

This would be the perfect question to direct to your city council's
technical department or your local representative.

Perhaps someone forgot to flick the switch.

In our city, I've seen the same several times, but the explanation was
that the technicians testing the light circuits before/after changing
the broken bulbs. The circuits usually contain hundreds or thousand of
lights, so sometimes it seems that the whole city is lit.

Generally, it's due either testing, if for short periods, or broken
equipment, and the light owner would appreciate a call to advise them of
power being wasted.

Some cities have unmetered contracts with the power utility which
don't include limits on usage.
