The challenge for the city of Miami is to create a greener and more efficient city. To achieve this, Florida Power and Light is deploying North America’s largest networked street lighting program to connect and control more than 500,000 street lights.

The city of Miami and its numerous residents.

The approach: » IPv6-BASED MULTI-APPLICATION NETWORK – leveraging the same network for multiple applications, including advanced metering, distribution automation and smart street lights. » SILVER SPRING’S STREETLIGHT.VISION SOFTWARE – controlling and managing street lights with adaptive lighting approaches that adjust light levels based on motion or presence levels. » EFFICIENT OPERATIONS – reducing call center load, enabling faster outage response and restoration, better asset management and network performance.

Smart energy projects such as LED street lighting can lower a city’s energy consumption to meet environmental regulations and initiatives. Automated dimming and reduced runtime through network control can also drive additional energy savings. Residential and commercial demand response can improve the stability and reliability of the energy distribution grid.

Such smart city projects can increase energy efficiency and meet requirements for reduced CO2 emissions through compliance to regulatory mandates.

By automating management and delivering more precise outage information, networked street lighting can increase operational savings by reducing the need for mobile crews and in the process lower maintenance needs.
