Get a Hold of Your Assets: Why Utilities Should Conduct a Geospatial Audit of Their Streetlights

Utilities require accurate information about their assets to properly assess and prioritize alternatives in terms of ongoing programs and capital deployments. However, very few have either the time or the internal resources to get an accurate, up-to-date asset inventory. Many others have multiple inventories with dramatically different numbers and many key asset descriptors missing in action.

Our white paper offers a good overview of the current state of the average utility streetlight inventory and the benefits of adding a Geographic Information System (GIS)-based inventory. Some considerations for incorporating this into ongoing asset management efforts and 8 other benefits are provided.
