Provide Feedback Potential LED Streetlights

Archived News Release: January 4, 2024 - ​The City of Ann Arbor was awarded the Carbon Reduction Grant from the Southeast Michigan Council of Governments (SEMCOG), which will allow the city to transition DTE-owned streetlights from high pressure sodium to light emitting diode (LED) bulbs. LED bulbs last much longer and use less energy than sodium bulbs, and the conversion is an identified strategy in Ann Arbor's A2ZERO carbon neutrality plan. To complete this project, the city is seeking input from the public on the possible color temperature and wattage of the new lights.

Through Jan. 12, 2024, the city has installed LED bulbs in streetlights at Easy Street and Packard –and– West Liberty and Eberwhite Boulevard to demonstrate the different color temperature and wattage of LEDs being considered. A QR code to scan is posted at each location so residents can share their input via an online survey.
