The first street-lighting projects developed under contract between the Quebec Federation of Municipalities (FQM) and Énergère are now underway. Énergère offers preferential pricing to Quebec municipalities that want to modernise their street-lighting networks.
The cities of Bromont, Rivière-du-Loup and Nicolet, as well as the municipality of Verchères, are among the first cities to join the action plan. These four cities have built new street lighting networks that use LED technology in order to improve quality of life and security for citizens. This initiative will enable them to reduce both energy costs (by approximately 70%) and light pollution. Three of these cities have implemented intelligent lighting management systems to remotely control their lighting network in real time.
Over the next three years, cities and towns across Quebec can take advantage of attractive offers to ease their transition towards efficient, safe and environmentally friendly lighting networks. They can also upgrader their modernisation projects by adding an intelligent control system that uses wireless communication infrastructure to ensure efficient management of their street lighting network.
It’s quick and easy to obtain a free, no-obligation assessment via the FQM’s Municipal Purchasing Service (Service d’achat municipal, or SAM). (French only)
Every municipality that participates in the action plan receives a comprehensive range of services, including:
• a detailed feasibility study
• turnkey installation
• work performed by local entrepreneurs
The FQM and Énergère have established a communication campaign to inform citizens about public lighting modernisation projects. This campaign promotes the advantages of the advanced technologies used, environmental benefits and economic outcomes for each project.
