Streetlight Conversion Project
The City of Lebanon is purchasing public streetlights from Liberty Utilities and converting them to light-emitting diode (LED) fixtures. This conversion project will provide significant savings, reduce greenhouse gasses and light pollution, and offer superior lighting for improved public safety. The new streetlights will be connected through a network that will be run by the City and they can be dimmed to save energy or brightened to meet a specific need.
Streetlight Removal Process
Following the 2018 adoption of Administrative Policy ADM-109: Lighting of Public Ways/Places/Parking Facilities, a total of 89 streetlights were selected for removal in 2019. Two additional streetlights on Clark and Hough Streets were identified for removal in Fall 2020. The pink flyer, shown to the right, is posted on streetlights which will be removed as part of the conversion project. The removal process is scheduled to take place in November 2020 and will be done by Liberty Utilities. View the complete list of streetlights scheduled for removal.
Benefits of LED Lighting
The benefits of LED lighting include:
- Significant energy savings and reduced maintenance
- Significant cost savings, up to 80%
- Longer lifespan, 15-20 years versus 5 years for conventional streetlights
- Reduction of Greenhouse Gasses
- Superior light quality which increases safety for pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers
- Reduction of Light Pollution in the night sky
- Additional Functions: these lights can be dimmed or brightened by the City whenever needed
