Saint-Pierre-des-Corps combines quality lighting with energy savings
The city of Saint-Pierre-des-Corps set out to modernize its street lighting system and transform it into a model of energy efficiency. Our comprehensive management services are helping the city achieve its goals.
A gateway to the Loire Valley, Saint-Pierre-des-Corps is home to vibrant manufacturing and services industries that were revitalized after the construction of the Paris-Bordeaux high-speed rail link, which passes through the city. The banks of the Loire River, one of the city’s most striking features, were spared destruction during the Second World War, and are now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The railroad also plays an important role in the city’s history and heritage.
Saint-Pierre-des-Corps is a charming, delightful place to live—and the local government wants to make sure it stays that way. One of the top priorities of the region’s Climate Plan is to streamline Saint-Pierre-des-Corps’ street lighting system in order to cut down on energy use.
Saint-Pierre-des-Corps launched a major project to modernize its street lighting and traffic signals with the goals of setting an example for energy efficiency and significantly reducing the city’s yearly energy bill. Our comprehensive management services played a crucial role in achieving these goals.
Since 2008 we have been working with city planners to:
Our work reduced the amount of electricity used by street lighting by almost 80%, traffic lights by 73%, and stadium lights by 17%.
Our computer-assisted maintenance application has improved the lighting system’s day-to-day operations. We also updated the maintenance procedures for greater efficiency.
At the city’s request, we are working to upgrade the outdoor lighting on certain private properties.
