Ribeira’s Municipal Corporation had two major objectives: to improve energy efficiency and to create well-lit spaces so Ribeira’s people felt safer at night. To achieve this, they needed to renew an urban lighting network comprising over 8,500 light points and incorporating new LED luminaires on the CityTouch system. By streamlining the new lighting and reducing energy consumption, they could invest cost savings in other areas of their Smart City project
In less than six months, 8,600 conventional sodium, halide and mercury discharge light points were replaced by LED street lights, with over 6,500 incorporated in the CityTouch system. The plug-and-play system made the setup quick and easy. Automatic commissioning enabled newly connected luminaires to relay performance data like energy consumption and lighting levels almost instantly after setup.
The Municipal Corporation achieved its predicted 70% cost saving, and the high-quality light has made Ribeira feel safer after dark. The sense of safety and improved color after dark has improved day-to-day living for residents.
Operating and maintaining the renewed connected led street lighting system is easy. With the CityTouch connect app, luminaires can be remotely managed either individually or in groups, in close to real-time or on a pre-scheduled basis. Thanks to the new streamlined maintenance, lighting operators are now one step ahead. They automatically receive notifications if there’s a problem or failure, and can immediately adjust lighting to meet Ribeira’s needs.
