Why Municipalities are Making the Smart Choice with Smart Cells
Technology is changing cities and municipalities across the country, making it more cost and energy efficient to perform every-day tasks and activities. Smart technology is being used in unique applications, such as municipal LED street lighting or self-driving vehicles, driven by the fast-growing digital industry. Keep up with the times and consider ways that technology, more specifically, smart cell poles are making the future for cities widely a lot brighter.
In some instances, upgrading to LED technology may not include updating fixtures. Some businesses, towns, and municipalities may want to retain the look and aesthetics of their current HID lamps, but with the benefits and conveniences of LED technology. Whether you are contemplating LED roadway lighting for a city or outdoor LED lighting for your neighborhood, retrofit lighting could be the solution. LED retrofits can help maintain the look and style of your historical or one-of-a-kind fixtures, but with all the perks of modern LED.
Studies show that LED (light emitting diode) lighting can improve municipal streets. There is a notable difference in light quality, energy efficiency, and lifespan, which can curb city costs year-round. LED lighting is used at sites like Times Square and Buckingham Palace, further reinforcing the many advantages of LEDs.
Those of us living and administrating in small cities understand the pain that comes with budgeting. Every light, decoration, and utility needs to be considered. This is why LED lights have become such an important commodity to communities all over the U.S. Continue reading →
