In the summer of 2018, the first set of 900 LED street lamps were installed in the northern section of DeKalb for the purpose of added safety and energy efficiency. In the remaining months of 2019, LED replacement lamps will be installed in an additional 900 streetlights managed by ComEd within the city limits.
As the lamps are installed during daylight hours, it often is difficult to assure the proper angle of each lamp to minimize light trespass into surrounding homes. ComEd provides service to all residents who request repositioning of the lamps near their homes, whether the lamps were installed in 2018 or during the remainder of this year. To request service, call 800-334-7661.
