Although not yet gone, the purple glow emanating from many of Lincoln’s streetlights is fading.
Over 1,500 LED streetlights emitted a purple hue due to a manufacturer’s defect. This problem has been something Lincoln Transportation and Utilities has been working on fixing for his over a year and a half.
The crew replaced about 100 faulty lights in May 2021, which ballooned to 500 seven months later. In October, an LTU official said he had more than 1,000 replacement bulbs from the manufacturer and was working on installing them to replace defective bulbs. At the time, they said, they replaced his 40% of the defective bulbs.
To date, 624 of the remaining defective bulbs have been replaced and will be replaced in the coming months.

LTU Director Liz Elliott said:
The 1,500 defective lights are one of over 26,000 LED lights installed during the 2019 conversion project.
The purple glow isn’t just for Lincoln. Schneider/Acuity has sold LED lights to Lincoln and at least a dozen other cities. The LED light turned purple after working fine for a while. The manufacturer will cover the cost of the replacement bulb.
Lincoln now has a total of 32,423 LED street lights. It is more efficient, requires less maintenance and protects the environment.
According to Elliott, LED streetlights save the city about $340,000 a year in energy costs, last 10 to 15 years longer than older fixtures, and reduce the carbon footprint of more than 1,000 homes annually. To do.
