Chicago Is Spending $160 Million on Smart Street Lights

The project aims to replace 270,000 lights with remotely-controlled and auto-dimming LEDs expected to slash energy consumption and pay for themselves. More than just brighter lights, the four-year undertaking adds a degree of automation. The LEDs will be able to sense and react to ambient lighting conditions and utility workers can turn them on, off or dim them remotely. The initiative, announced on Tuesday, is headed by the Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT), the Chicago Infrastructure Trust (CIT) and is provided by the energy infrastructure firm Ameresco. http://statescoop.com/chicago-is-spending-160-million-on-smart-street-lights
