The new lighting plan of 6,500 LED urban and streetlights with excellent photometric performance was selected along with the ‛pay-as-you-save’ financial model by Novalume. The solution resulted in an improvement of the public lighting in the three municipalities, which contributed to a safer and more sustainable environment, enhancing their citizens’ quality of life.

The three municipalities also benefited from Novalume’s one-stop-shop approach: one contract and one point of contact. Novalume always works with local partners who service the LED lighting installation. They carry out the installation and are responsible for maintaining it. This after-sales service, together with the finance plan, is part of Novalume’s winning formula.
