Financial, social and environmental benefits
A complete modernization of Mocoa’s public lighting infrastructure resulted in significant energy savings, improved quality of life for citizens, and a foundation for Smart City upgrades in the future.
Novalume supplied 2,700 LED luminaires, which are vastly more efficient and effective than the old sodium lamps they replaced. The new luminaires are configured with a basic photocontrol sensor but are equipped with a NEMA socket, making it easy to upgrade them with the Lumintell™ Smart City and Lighting Management System at a later date. The whole solution was financed with Novalume’s ‘Pay-as-you-save’ financing plan and will allow the municipality to pay off the investment using the generated savings in 5.5 years, well within the warranty period of 7 years and the expected lifetime of 20 years.
