Operational Impact
  • [Cost Reduction - Energy]
    Smart energy projects such as LED street lighting can lower a city’s energy consumption to meet environmental regulations and initiatives. Automated dimming and reduced runtime through network control can also drive additional energy savings. Residential and commercial demand response can improve the stability and reliability of the energy distribution grid.
  • [Efficiency Improvement - Compliance]
    Such smart city projects can increase energy efficiency and meet requirements for reduced CO2 emissions through compliance to regulatory mandates.
  • [Cost Reduction - Maintenance]
    By automating management and delivering more precise outage information, networked street lighting can increase operational savings by reducing the need for mobile crews and in the process lower maintenance needs.
