Smiths Falls converts to LED
Street lighting is one of the largest items in the municipal energy budget. Converting to LEDs can greatly reduce energy consumption (40-70%) and costs, reduce maintenance costs, and improve public safety and security. The Ohio Municipal League (OML) believes that towns and cities can utilize the upgrade opportunity to also add a networked lighting control system and smart city devices to obtain further cost reductions and service enhancements.
Since 1952, the OML has been the voice of municipalities in the state legislature and the guardian of municipal rights. One of the core functions of the OML Service Corporation (OMLSC) is to find and properly vet municipal service providers that can meet the highest standards for the lowest possible cost.
The OML is pleased to announce that it has endorsed RealTerm Energy as a best value service provider for LED Street Lighting Conversions.
