Dimmable LED Drivers
meetings on the street light project to which
citizens were invited. The attendees of those
meetings learned about the level of problem
the city faced and the justifications behind
the decisions made.
The Detroit project was one in which the
DOE was deeply involved as it was part of the
Outdoor Lighting Accelerator (OLA) program
that was announced by US President Barack
Obama in the summer of 2014. Early in 2015,
President Obama tripled the goal of the OLA
calling for 1. 5 million lights to be converted
to SSL by May of 2016 ( http://bit.ly/1x TPOxu).
At the IES Street and Area Lighting Confer-
ence, held Oct. 5–7, 2015, Crystal McDonald
from the DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and
Renewable Energy provided an update and
said there are now 20 active participants in
the OLA program installing LED street lights,
with nine months remaining in the program
as presently defined.
At the aforementioned DOE workshop last
year, the interest from the DOE and the Federal Government in the Detroit project was
clear. Byron Auguste, who at the time was
the deputy director of the National Economic
Council and a member of President Obama’s
staff, spoke at the workshop and said the
Detroit project would lift the local economy
with the DOE and the lighting suppliers training local citizens to do the work. Auguste also
said the lighting was needed so school kids
would feel safer and vandals in general would
be deterred by the new lighting.
