LED Streetlight Conversion

UPDATE: LED streetlight installation is currently underway! Weather permitting, a Town hired contractor (Dagle Electric) will convert approximately 2500 cobra head style lights to LEDs. Streetlight outages, cycling lights and functioning lights will be serviced through this project. DPW anticipates that this project will be complete by the end of March 2019. Thank you for your patience through this transitional period!

The Town of Needham is in the process of converting approximately 2500 streetlights in Town with LED fixtures with smart controls. The project will replace the existing high pressure sodium cobra head fixtures. The Town’s contractor, Dagle Electric will be working throughout Needham to complete the installation by the end of February 2019. LED lights use significantly less energy and are expected to last two times longer than high pressure sodium lights. The Town also anticipates a significant savings in energy and maintenance costs. The smart controls will allow the Town to remotely monitor system performance and identify light outages immediately.

This project is partly funded by a grant through the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) and funds appropriated from May 2018’s Town Meeting.

Listed below are four vendors that are currently under contract with the Town to provide supplies and installation services for the LED conversion. In order for the Town to qualify for grant funding, two of these contracts were bid through the MAPC.

  • Project Manager/Consultant for the Town: AECOM
  • Supply LED Fixtures: (bid through MAPC) Graybar Electrical Supply 
  • Installation of LED Lights: (bid through MAPC) Dagle Electrical Construction Corp.
  • Smart Controls: Cimcon Lighting
