Westbrook Energy Committee - LED Streetlight Resident Feedback

This survey is designed to receive comments on the six pilot LED fixtures installed in Westbrook CT before the final order for installation is submitted.  Three LED fixtures have been installed on wooden utility poles at the Town Beach, one 4,000 Kelvin fixture facing into the parking lot at its entrance and two 3,000 Kelvin residential street fixtures on Seaside Avenue. The two wooden poles with LED fixtures on Seaview Avenue have a yellow tape tied around them for easy identification. The standard residential street fixture is located next to the basketball hoops about halfway down the parking lot on pole # 840 and a brighter fixture designed for State Routes and other main roads is on pole #906 at the corner of Seaview Avenue and Tarpon Avenue. Residential street intersections will have a fixture with a brightness level between the two fixtures on Seaview. Three additional LED retrofits to metal pole light fixtures are scheduled to be installed in late July, one on Flat Rock Place, leading to the Westbrook Outlets, one at the intersection of Fairview and Halls Roads, and one at the end of Halls Road.  For additional information about this streetlight project, please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions and Answers on the Energy Committee's website. (A link to this FAQ and a map of the location of the pilot fixtures is on the left side of the Town's website or visit https://westbrookenergy.org).

Question Title

* 1. Clinton has installed 4,000 Kelvin LED fixtures, with a blue-white color. Madison, Old Saybrook and other towns have installed 3,000 Kelvin LED fixtures, more yellow-white in color and recommended by the American Medical Association. The 4,000 Kelvin fixture at the Town Beach entrance is similar to Clinton's.  Westbrook plans to install 3,000 Kelvin fixtures.  Which do you prefer?

Question Title

* 2. The LED fixture on Seaview Avenue next to the basketball hoops at Town Beach is 3,000 Kelvin and is the same residential street fixture as those installed in Old Saybrook and Madison. This is not as orange in color as the existing high pressure sodium fixtures being replaced and has more of its light directed downward. In answering this question, please observe the amount of light directed on the street for this question, not by looking up at the fixture itself.

Question Title

* 3. The 3,000 Kelvin LED fixture at the corner of Seaview Avenue and Tarpon Avenue (just past the Town Beach parking lot) is designed for Routes 1, 153, 145 and 166 as well as other main roads. Residential street intersections will have a fixture with an amount of illumination in between these two pilot fixtures.  Please observe the amount of light directed on the streets at the intersection for the following question.

Question Title

On Flat Rock Place leading to the Westbrook Outlets, there will be an LED retrofit installed in late July in an "acorn" style white globe on the top of a metal light pole on the right side of the road after the Shoreline Clinic heading toward the Outlets.  Please provide your evaluation of this fixture below:
