The US government’s Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) is a $1.2 trillion, once-in-a-generation opportunity to rebuild and modernize America’s outdated infrastructure. Through targeted allocation of federal funds, the IIJA drives investments in strengthening and revitalizing roads, bridges, ports, schools, broadband, and more.
Lighting has a critical role to play in each of these areas. Installing LED and connected lighting is one of the fastest and most effective means to reduce energy consumption, cut greenhouse gas emissions, and engage communities. IoT and broadband capabilities built on top of the connected lighting infrastructure offer extraordinary benefits that go far beyond illumination, enhancing safety, spurring economic activity, and driving prosperity.
Now is the perfect time to get started on your infrastructure project and to leverage LED and connected lighting. Signify, the world leader in lighting, has created the Brighten America program so that you can take action without delay.
