The public lighting(CLASSIC) is a key service provided by local and municipal public authorities. However, many public lighting networks are outdated and inefficient. For cities with outdated systems, public lighting can account for 30% to 50% of their overall power consumption.
Modern public lighting systems have many benefits:
Strengthen road traffic safety;
Improve nighttime visibility, reduce criminal activity, and improve citizens’ sense of security;
Increased legal activity after dusk leads to increased productivity and longer working days that allow people to travel safely in the future;
Reduced power consumption due to energy-saving technologies, resulting in reduced costs (sometimes violent);
The city government demonstrates an effective and highly visible way of committing to its constituents.
Energy-saving public lighting can save costs as energy prices rise and cities where energy costs do not fade across the country. The savings from efficient lighting depend on the technology being replaced (maximizing the savings from old technologies such as high-pressure mercury) and the associated efficiency of energy reduction and preventive maintenance. Most of the cost of a public lighting network comes from operations rather than investment itself. The total cost of typical public lighting installations over a 25-year period is broadly divided into: 85% maintenance/operation (including power supply) and 15% capital cost.
