CIMCON, a provider of smart city solutions including outdoor lighting management systems, says the New York Power Authority (NYPA) and the City of Syracuse has chosen the company’s intelligent lighting controls to be installed on 17,500 new streetlights throughout the city. The initiative will improve lighting and help Syracuse achieve fiscal sustainability.
As the first component of Syracuse Surge, an economic growth and neighborhood revitalization plan, Syracuse also chose Presidio and Cisco to implement the new streetlight infrastructure.
The new streetlights will advance the city’s mission of being a “smart city” by leveraging technology to improve the local economy and create new opportunities for citizens. Purchased in partnership with NYPA, the new streetlights are anticipated to deliver more than $3 million in annual savings through maintenance and energy efficiencies. In addition, the streetlights are expected to provide better quality light, reduce the need for citizens to report outages, and improve lighting for the city’s first responders.
CIMCON’s intelligent controls connected to its central management system, LightingGale will enable the city to proactively manage, monitor and maintain the new street lights to deliver the right amount of lighting when and where needed, providing an increased level of safety for residents, while conserving energy. Improved monitoring and management of the city’s streetlight infrastructure will enable proactive repairs and reduced maintenance costs, further improving public safety and livability, while encouraging fiscal sustainability.
