A smarter street lighting infrastructure for New York’s state capital
As part of the New York Power Authority’s (NYPA) Smart Street Lighting program, NYPA engaged Signify through a competitive procurement process that enabled Albany to upgrade its nearly 11,000 streetlights to energy-efficient, connected LED luminaires. The city also uses Signify’s Interact IoT system to monitor and manage the lights, helping it to be an energy-smart city.
“Connected LED street lighting plays an important role in building smart city infrastructure. An early adopter, the City of Albany has realized tremendous energy and operational savings,” said Jesse Scott, Director of Projects, NYPA. “We are thrilled with the prospect of piloting the sensor solution in Albany, so it can bring even more value for the city and residents. It will enable departments, from the parking authority to city planning, to make data-driven decisions to improve public safety, support future planning and improve communication infrastructure in disadvantaged communities.”
