With the support of the U.S. Department of Energy, over the past several years MEEA has provided ongoing technical assistance to City of Chicago in preparation for upgrading 270,000 high-pressure sodium lamps to LEDs. MEEA has:
- Helped consider technology options
- Assisted with the LED fixture and networked control system procurement process
- Convened with U.S. DOE and National Lab street lighting experts to bring expert knowledge to the local level
- Documented successful strategies, challenges and lessons learned throughout the process
