Where are the pilot fixtures being installed?

Three cobra head fixtures are being installed near the Town Beach. One 4000-Kelvin fixture is at the entrance to the parking lot, a 3000 Kelvin residential street fixture is on Seaside Avenue near the basketball backstops in the parking lot, and a brighter 3000-Kelvin fixture (for main roads) at the corner of Seaside Avenue and Tarpon Avenue. Residential intersections will have fixtures with an illumination level in between these two demo LEDs. Retrofits for the lantern-style decorative fixtures will be installed at the intersection of Fairview and Halls Roads and at the end of Halls Road. One fixture on Flat Rock Place will also have its metal halide fixture retrofitted with an LED. Poles on Seaview Avenue with LEDs have yellow tape around them for easy identification. Residents may provide feedback on color and light distribution during July via a survey to be posted on the Energy Committee’s web site.
