Chicago Installs 76K LED Streetlights in First Year of Upgrade Program

In the year since the Chicago Smart Lighting Program began, the city’s Department of Transportation has installed 76,000 LED smart streetlight fixtures in all of the city’s 50 wards. The four-year modernization program entails replacing 270,000 lights by 2021 and installing a citywide lighting management system. The system will notify the city when lights need servicing once it becomes operational later this year. The city estimates the energy efficient lights will save up to $1 million in electricity costs the first year and $100 million over 10 years, and that the savings will offset the cost of upgrading. https://www.smartcitiesdive.com/news/
