Actually space mirrors are eminently possible and require very little mass. The hard part is engineering the mechanism to unfold delicate foil in the void, after surviving launch and geosynchronous insertion of course.

The solution of course is to not use street lighting at all. There's nothing wrong with it being dark out, just need to reprogram the monkey brains!
