West Richmond, WA, recently replaced 1,097 streetlights with Autobahn LED luminaries from Acuity Brands, according to Equipment World. The transition enables energy use to be reduced by more than 60 percent and, according to the story, increases illumination and addresses “dark sky” conditions.
The city simultaneously installed Acuity’s ROAM wireless monitoring system that enables the city to control the timing of the light dimming. This, according to Mayor Brent Gerry, enables the city to further reduce costs.
Acuity Brands acquired the patent portfolio and all other intellectual property rights of ByteLight, a provider of indoor location software for LED lighting.
