The replacement of old, standard street lighting by intelligent street lighting resulting in energy savings and costs.
The upgrade of standard streetlight networks can attain energy savings of 10-15%. This usually includes central control and a high number of photocells being replaced with a single one. Also dimming can be added, adding another 25-35% of savings during the dimming period.
The intelligent monitoring and control systems are centrally managed. The optimisation of on and off hours can easily add 10-15% energy savings. When full lighting is not needed, the Energy Savings Mode can cut costs further by 35%. Further maintenance increases the quality and safety of the streetlights in parallel to the savings made.
