NIPSCO, Dyer and Purdue University Northwest Professor Robert Kramer need to be held accountable for the conversion of LED street lighting recently installed.
NIPSCO hired Kramer to evaluate and select the fixtures on the premise of saving energy (aka money). Unfortunately, the conversion has left Dyer residents with inadequate lighting.
We used to be able to walk on the sidewalk last summer and feel safe. Now we have to have a flashlight in hand to do so. Sufficient light levels need to be maintained on our walkways for safety and legal reasons. I pray that no one is harmed due to this inadequate lighting.
You have free articles remaining.
Being a good lighting professional means you address energy efficiency and sufficient light, not just the bottom line.
I understand Dyer is going to use NIPSCO's buying power to light our main roads, so expect U.S. 30 to also be poorly lit.
Leonard Chocholek, Dyer
