Miami Dade County is committed to a brighter future for our area! Together with FPL, they are working to brighten up our streets for those evening strolls with new LED lighting.
The Special Assessment Districts Division has partnered with Florida Power & Light to convert special taxing lighting districts current street lights to equivalent LED energy efficient street lights. The conversion to LED lights offers many advantages.
LED lights are more energy efficient providing a reduction in energy usage and are more dependable lowering maintenance costs. They have a higher color rendering index which makes it easier to differentiate colors at night and are more directional, which reduces light pollution. The conversion of 903 special taxing lighting districts throughout Miami-Dade County will be done in four phases and is expected to be completed by 2021 or sooner.
Below please find the special tax lighting districts within Commission District 4 that FPL has informed us they are working on converting to LED.
