Get A Grip On Lighting: Minneapolis Is In A Purple State

A city in suburban Minneapolis changed its street lighting to purple. Residents say they like it, while the city’s response is that they believe they have a faulty product.

City streetlights were some of the first to adapt to LED lighting, with many working directly with manufacturers. Now, many of those lighting companies aren’t even in business anymore. But, there is good news, which the hosts of the Get A Grip On Lighting podcast explain.

Greg Ehrich, LC is the former President of the National Association of Innovative Lighting Distributors (NAILD) and owner of Premier Lighting, a progressive lighting distributorship.

Michael Colligan is an entrepreneur and inventor. He’s a subject matter expert in commercial and industrial lighting supply, lighting retrofits, and finding recycling streams for hard-to-recycle waste.

The Get A Grip On Lighting podcast on lightED is sponsored by Keystone Technologies.

    Greg, Michael,
    these are Acuity brand Autobahn cobra heads. We have had many failures (turning ultraviolet) and they have been replaced under warranty. ATBO-20BLED10 fixtures primarily.
