LED Street & Area Light Project Services
Inventory Audit: Our audits capture both street light and pole characteristics as well as pole spacing and placement, roadway classification, lane configuration, and other lighting application data such as average daily traffic and historic accident data. Ameresco also offers street lighting condition assessments and reconciliation of inventory and billing data.
Design Process: Ameresco’s best-in-class GIS-based design process maximizes energy savings and minimizes glare and light trespass. Using audit data, we identify common and critical lighting applications and develop luminaire specifications to ensure your illumination levels are achieved with the lowest possible energy consumption.
Light Fixture Selection: We will evaluate options from a variety of vendors using photometric and lifecycle cost analysis. If desired, we can also compare the relative energy consumption of different color temperature options, and ensure that Dark Sky compliance is achieved.
Local Incentives and Rebates: Ameresco has extensive experience identifying and capturing utility incentives and rebates (over $35M for the Chicago Smart Lighting Project alone, for example) as well as grants from local, state, and federal government, and other sources. We complete rebate applications, conduct pre- and post-construction site visits with inspectors, and respond to inquiries from utility company staff regarding savings calculations.
Community Outreach: Before, during, and after the project, Ameresco can provide community outreach to showcase how your LED street light conversion addresses your commitment to safety and sustainability.
