BREITUNG TOWNSHIP UPGRADING STREET LIGHTS

In case you are wondering if the street lights look any different, the answer is maybe.  The Township has entered into an agreement to convert all streetlights to LED fixtures.  We will experience substantial savings over the life of this project. The installation has already begun.  It is only the public streetlights that are being changed at this time, some people or business have private agreements with the power company for their area (drive-way, yard, etc.) lights. 

This information may be helpful to better understand what the change to LED streetlights mean:

-The light color is much more purely white. The older fixtures put out a yellow/orange spectrum.

-The lumen output is very close to the old fixtures. The perception is that there is much more light from the LED fixtures.

-The light pattern is very uniform unlike the old fixtures where there were bright spots and dark spots in the pattern.

-There is almost no light “spillover” from these new fixtures. While it is bright in the intended lighting pattern, very little of that light reflects out of the intended pattern.

If you have any questions about the new street lights please contact John Gaudette at 906-779-2055.
