Smiths Falls converts to LED
RealTerm Energy is proud to be working with the City of Agawam, Massachusetts. The installation of energy efficient LED lights for the town’s 2,180 streetlights has been completed. The conversion to LED fixtures manufactured by Acuity Brands will generate 71% in energy savings and reduced greenhouse gas emissions within the first year. This upgrade will reduce the town’s annual electricity costs by a projected amount of $248,000.
RealTerm’s innovative Investment Grade Audit (IGA) process has proven invaluable to both the municipalities and the utilities navigating this process. The IGA includes extensive field investigations, infrastructure analysis, comprehensive lighting designs, and detailed engineering calculations to project accurate and reliable energy and maintenance savings. The results help clarify who owns what, what the costs of ownership transfer will be, and the exact scope of the conversion to LED.
