LED Streetlighting Phase 2

picture of streetlight In 2013, the City of Welland completed Phase 1 of the LED Streetlight Conversion. This involved replacing approximately 4300 High Pressure Sodium (HPS) cobra head style streetlights with Light-Emitting Diode (LED) fixtures.

The City is now in the initial stages of Phase 2, which would replace approximately 2300 post-top fixtures, mostly in residential neighbourhoods. As part of this, 6 post-top HPS streetlights have been replaced with a prototype LED fixture on the west end of Rolling Acres Drive, near Rice Road.

Residents are encouraged to visit Rolling Acres Drive in the evening to observe the proposed streetlighting and provide feedback via e-mail to bryan.purins@welland.ca by November 1, 2014. Responses will help Council decide if, how, and when they should proceed with the implementation of Phase 2 LED streetlights across the City.
