Utility crews will spend the next year installing new lights in most of the city`s streetlights. The result: energy savings, better visibility - oh, and a different color of Denver.
The conversion of about 44,000 outdoor fixtures to light-emitting diodes will leave the city washed in a neutral, whiter light. As the current sodium lights are removed, it might look as if someone`s removed an orange filter from Denver`s evenings.
[It seems white, rather than a yellow glow. They called it a white-warm light," said Nancy Kuhn, spokesperson for Denver Public Works. That change has raised health concerns in the past, but Denver officials say they`re using new technology that minimizes the effects of blue light.
The transformation, which is expected to improve safety along busy roads, will begin along Federal Boulevard and Colfax Avenue. Over the next year, they`ll then spread to West Denver, Central Denver and, lastly, East Denver
In 2016, the American Medical Association warned that excessively blue light, like that emitted from early LEDs, can worsen light pollution and disrupt the biological rhythms of people and animals, compared to sodium lights.
However, technological improvements have addressed those concerns. The earliest deployments measured over 5,000 kelvins in color temperature, making them more blue than yellow. In recent years, most cities have embraced the warmer-hued 4,000-kelvin bulbs, according to the Department of Energy.
