MODERNISATION OF PUBLIC STREET LIGHTING TO REDUCE SYSTEM COSTS
MUNICIPALITY OF PODGORA
In 2015, in the municipality of Podgora, a project of modernising public street lighting and implementing energy services in saving electricity in street lighting was successfully completed. In total, approximately a thousand LED lights have been installed, achieving maximum savings while reducing the impact on the environment and improving the aesthetic of the lighting installation. The project is worth about three million kuna and will be paid for with energy savings over the next few years.
ABOUT THE PROJECT:
During the implementation of the street lighting modernisation project, PrecisionLux series LED lights were installed. They represent the latest generation of high-efficiency and high-quality LED lights that consume much less electricity and provide a greater amount of lighting power than previously used lights. Subsequently upgraded lights are connected to PrecisionDimm controllers which, depending on how long the lights are turned on and the time of the night, control the light intensity by reducing it in those times of the night when traffic is less frequent and the need for street lighting is lower. This does not impair the quality of lighting, but significantly reduces energy consumption, which increases the savings of the municipality of Podgora by 40%.
