UPDATE: The LED Conversion Project is 90% complete. Dagle Electric will continue to wrap-up the project, working on miscellaneous punch-list items. DPW is asking all residents to please take a look around your neighborhood to see if there are any issues with the new streetlights. At the completion of this project, DPW will begin to further troubleshoot light issues with the Town's new maintenance provider.
If you have already notified the Town about a light that is too bright, non-functioning
or dayburning, thank you! We have documented your request.
If you are looking to have a streetlight dimmed due to brightness issues, we are working towards being able to make these changes for you. The Town is awaiting access to the new smart controls system, which will allow DPW to remotely dim streetlights and be notified of future outages.
Please notify DPW of any streetlight issues via SeeClickFix or by phone at #781-455-7550.
Thank you for your patience!
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.
