The existing high-pressure sodium lighting fixtures will be replaced with 26,000 induction and LED lamps pre-configured with Sensus FlexNet wireless endpoints by local manufacturer Global Green Lighting over the next sixteen months.

The new Sensus FlexNet lighting control system will allow officials to maintain precise operation of each lamp from one location to determine the appropriate output for the area and time of day.

The Sensus-GGL combination includes replacement light assembly that uses either an energy efficient induction lamp and ballast or light-emitting diode lamp with an integrated FlexNet radio, providing complete two-way communication with each lamp in the service territory.

The city’s new lighting system is expected to produce an average annual savings in energy and maintenance costs of about $2.7m.

Sensus is a utility infrastructure company offering smart meters, communication systems, software and services for the electric, gas, and water industries.
