Beacon Products' representative, Mike Bay of Baylume, became involved with this project several years ago through a local landscape architect, McKenna Associates, in Northville MI. Initial designs included traditional style pedestrian scale luminaires and decorative fluted poles. Recently, a new design team at Giffels- Webster in Rochester Hills, MI was contracted to evaluate changing to energy efficient LED lighting. Achieving comparable lighting levels was a key design criteria. The design team selected 80W Direct LED units replacing 175w MH units to achieve the required lighting levels with a 60% reduction in energy.

After design and engineering was completed, a demonstration was set up for all to evaluate both the daytime appearance as-well-as the night-time lighting performance. The design teams, including city officials, were very excited about the product performance after seeing it illuminated.

Currently, two phases with luminaires totaling over 100 have been installed on the several roadways. The Township is very happy with the energy savings and the seeability of their new lighting system.
