TerraGo was recognised with Ameresco for the Richmond Hill streetlight conversion project in which Ameresco successfully designed, planned and installed over 10,000 smart street lights and deployed Itron’s Streetlight.Vision central management system. TerraGo’s cloud-based deployment system enabled work crews to commission network nodes and lights directly from their iPads, synchronising these units with the Streetlight.Vision platform in the command centre, reducing delays and eliminating errors.
“We’re honoured that our Richmond Hill project was selected for the Smart 50 Award” said Bob McCullough, President, Ameresco Canada. “This extensive retrofit project included converting nearly 13,000 lights to energy efficient LEDs and deploying a smart lighting control system. It provided significant benefits including smart lighting and a communications network and utilised a new TerraGo Streetlight deployment application. The application helped to reduce installation times and automate the commissioning process with the smart city software, Streetlight.Vision.”
TerraGo Streetlights are also being utilised by Ameresco in the City of Chicago, which is believed to be the largest city-led smart streetlight programme in the United States.
TerraGo delivers out-of-the-box features designed, tested and operationally-proven for smart streetlight projects. The company’s TerraGo Streetlights system seamlessly manages all the data needed to manage projects, from updating the inventory and plotting work locations, to providing a bird’s eye view of lights, poles, warehouses and work crews.
