Street Lighting

Acuity Brands specializes in 
providing solutions for smart city 
street lighting that supports the 
future development of your city.
City revitalization is sweeping across North America. We see downtown areas increasing their focus on safety, business, entertainment and sustainability, and on the role that LED street lighting can play in achieving their goals for improvement.

As cities and towns look for new ways to create an energetic and welcoming environment that attracts more people downtown, attention is turning to the benefits of LED street lighting and smart city lighting.

Municipalities are upgrading to new street lighting systems with LED fixtures and controls that are effective in reducing crime, accidents and energy consumption while also enhancing the city’s aesthetic and dynamic qualities. Improved light levels with LED lighting help with goals related to safety and security. And the long life and energy efficiency of LED street lights can have a significant impact in reducing both maintenance and energy use, thereby lowering overall operational costs for downtown lighting. In addition, they can play an important role as municipalities adopt responsible ordinances to protect the nighttime environment.
