The Columbus Division of Power is working to improve neighborhoods by providing high quality, energy efficient street lights. That is why the division is beginning a pilot project that will lead to new streetlight design standards for the entire city.
Streetlights along Northridge Road between Indianola Avenue and Granden Road have been replaced with a new generation of LED correlated color temperature (CCT) lights. CCT uses the Kelvin temperature measurement scale to describe the relative color appearance of a light source indicating whether it appears more yellow/gold (3,000 Kelvin) or more white (4,000 Kelvin).
In an effort to finalize the LED streetlight design standards for Columbus, the city has installed both 3,000 Kelvin and 4,000 Kelvin LED streetlights for public review. Lights are labeled “3K” and “4K” towards the top of the pole, right under the fixture. The lights are on from sundown to sunrise.
Comments regarding color temperature preference from all interested stakeholders, even those who do not live in the immediate area, including residents, area commissioners, developers, architects, electrical contractors and other providers will be accepted until 4 PM, Monday, November 23, 2016. Please submit written comments via email to email@example.com or mail-in comments to Danny Jones, Streetlight Engineering Manager, Division of Power, 3500 Indianola Ave., Columbus, OH 43214.
