Opinion Survey on LED Street Lighting


The Town of East Hampton is converting all of our streetlights to LEDs in accordance with the Town’s energy and sustainability goals and climate emergency declaration. 

By replacing conventional streetlights with energy efficient LEDs, we can reduce our energy consumption, generate cost savings for the Town, and reduce our emissions. LEDs last longer and require less maintenance than conventional lights. The Town plans to integrate smart technologies like a dashboard for remote monitoring to facilitate quick response to outages. 

There are two different lights in the survey, marked by numbers on wooden posts installed in front of the lampposts on Atlantic Avenue in Amagansett. One light fixture is a 2700 Kelvin LED, and the other is a 3000 Kelvin LED; they are the same wattage. Different Kelvins produce different color temperatures. They can provide different benefits and can also be difficult to distinguish from one another at times.  

Your responses to this short survey are important as the Town determines which LED fixture should be used for streetlights in the community.
