Two Chilean cities on their way to becoming Smart Cities
Novalume has upgraded the streets of two municipalities (+200,000 inhabitants) in Chile with the installation of 27,000 new LED and connected streetlights, thanks to the Lumintell™ Smart City solution. Furthermore, the installation has also been upgraded with the capacity to generate public Wi-Fi allowing residents to get online.
The switch to high performance energy-efficient LED lighting and the Lumintell™ Smart City solution has resulted in significantly reduced energy consumption, while enhancing the atmosphere and improving the quality of light. The switch means the municipality has experienced a 66% reduction in energy consumption. The city has also lowered it’s CO2 emissions - releasing 2,227 fewer tons of CO2 into the atmosphere each year.
The investment, including installation, has a payback period of less than 5 years with a technical lifetime of the installation of 16.7 years – more than 3 times the payback period!
