Massive Smart Lighting Project Planned for Windy City

chicago energy manageChicago has released a request for information (RFI) on a Smart Lighting Project, planning a switch to LED lighting and considering a centralized management system that would enable other services, according to LEDs Magazine.

The primary goal is to convert most of the outdoor lighting in the city to LEDs. The Chicago Infrastructure Trust (CIT) said that the city has 384,000 lights on streets, alleys, viaducts, pathways and on the lake front. No taxpayer money will be used in the switchover.

The city hopes that the smart lighting project will provide the base structure for other services. For example, San Diego used a project by GE Lighting to create a smart parking service.

The new LEDs will be significantly more energy efficient than the city’s current sodium vapor lights, and marks a positive step forward for a city that produces more light pollution than any other city in the world, according to a study from the University of Colorado (via the Chicagoist).

Another large LED project in the works is one in India that, during the next two years, will see the installation of as many as 35 million LEDs, according to an article last week in Energy Manager Today. The project could cut energy demand from 3,400 MW to 1,400 MW.

  1. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
