[ARCHIVED] City to celebrate “Last” LED streetlight conversion installation

For Immediate Release
Date: October 19, 2015

WHAT: Celebration of the last of 16,000 LED (light emitting diodes) streetlight conversion installations in the City of Savannah

WHEN: 10:00 a.m., Tuesday, October 20, 2015

WHERE: 12601 Largo Drive, Windsor Forest Subdivision

WHO: City Council, representatives from Georgia Power, City Staff and neighborhood residents

WHY: Georgia Power began the conversion to LED streetlights on July 6 of this year. Existing 100 Watt, 150 Watt and 250 Watt fixtures were replaced with LED’s of comparable illumination levels. Most streetlights were high pressure sodium (HPS) that had an “orange glow” appearance. The new LED’s broad spectrum light is white in appearance and appears brighter, although the light output is nearly identical. The broader spectrum of light means human eyes can better see street signs, bicyclists and pedestrians resulting in better peripheral vision at night. LED’s also use less energy for the same amount of illumination produced and deliver significantly longer life.
