Increase Energy Savings & Reduce Repair Costs for Your City with LightingGale

Municipalities are seeing massive savings when buying their municipal streetlights from the utility company and upgrading to LED streetlights. The problem is cities often miss a huge opportunity to also install lighting controllers during that process to gain even further savings (up to 30%) in additional energy savings. Additionally, when issues with streetlights arise, a city still must send a utility worker to the pole to investigate and repair the light sometimes requiring 2 to 4 different truck runs. In this webinar we will walk through how cities and towns are using LightingGale to save energy and money.
