“The transition to continuous streetlight system energization could increase the risk of lighting pole shocks to the public. This phenomenon has prompted some cities to consider budgeting for the detection, measurement, and mitigation of the hazard.” — Younes Rashidi, P. Eng.
The successful implementation of this risk mitigation strategy can reduce the risk of contact voltage hazards by up to 99.97 percent.
