The switch to high-performance energy-efficient LED lighting resulted in drastically reduced energy consumption, while enhancing the atmosphere and improving the quality of light. There is a calculated reduction of 66% in the energy consumption (which equates to several hundred thousand dollars every year!) and 2,227 fewer tons of CO2

being emitted into the atmosphere annually. The investment, including installation, has a payback period of less than 5 years, with the warranty period being 5 years. The technical lifetime of the installation is 16.7 years, more than 3 times the payback period and the warranty period.

“The solutions Novalume provided were an excellent contribution to Mayor Juan Enrique Castro Prieto’s efforts to reduce Talca operating costs, minimize their impact on the environment and transforming Talca City in a Smart City.”
