So What Does Smart Lighting Mean For My Lighting Costs?

Colorful 3D Illustrated Remote Learning Events and Special Interest Presentation

Telensa, the world leading provider of connected street lighting and smart city data applications, has announced that its PLANet smart street lighting solution has been awarded AEMO certification. The certification enables cities using PLANet to benefit financially from the energy savings achieved through dimming, trimming and managing constant-light-output.

As opposed to the traditional flat day rate used for power supply, energy suppliers can now combine the AEMO certified power consumption values for Telensa components with the PLANet logs for how long each streetlight is running and at what power levels. This provides an accurate picture of actual energy consumption, enabling cities to benefit from their energy savings and to analyse the overall benefits of upgrading to smart LED lighting, such as the impact it has on reducing carbon emissions.
