Illumient Street Lighting
The City of Hamilton (Mountain Brow Blvd), Canada
The City of Hamilton installed 40 Illumient solar-powered lights on a road adjacent to the Niagara Escarpment.
Why Smart Off-Grid?
As the land is limestone, it would not have been conducive to the trenching and cabling that would have been required to run electric power cables. In addition, the City wanted to reduce the growing burden of utility costs from grid-based street lights.
With the new Illumient lights, residents can enjoy the area later into the evening, throughout the year. The City also saved time and money in avoiding construction costs for cabling, ongoing maintenance and overall energy costs.
