I know, it's like they are against street lights over there.

Georgia Power maintains all the street lights in CoA, so I would guess GA Power is changing them over as the heads need to be replaced.

Rogers St NE and Rocky Ford Rd NE in Kirkwood have been updated to LED. They provide a much brighter beam.

I'm sure I've already posted in this thread, but I've seen these lights spreading quickly in my area. The difference in lighting is huge, and I'm glad to see that garrish orange sodium glare off the street. I hope they put these everywhere.

Would like to see a major thoroughfare get them like Ponce or Monroe, although parts of Highland just got them N & S of Ponce.

As has been said before, these lights are far better from a performance standpoint. Figuring out the right fixtures is important (they're changing so fast it's difficult to even have any defined standards), but these perform WAY better than HPS in terms of color rendition and MHL in terms of lumens per watt. And require like a tenth the maintenance. Long term, it's a no brainer to use these 100% of the time.

Will the city's contract with GA Power be reduced now that the cost per light is down?

I've noticed many streets off of Moores Mill Rd and Bohler Rd have changed to the LED. Looks much, much better and definitely feels safer.
