Siemens was awarded an Energy Performance Contract (EPC) for four communities in the state of New York: Clifton Park, Cohoes, Troy, and Cortlandville. Siemens identified smart streetlight retrofits as one of the early projects based on the clear, measurable energy efficiency benefits. As the communities convert to smart LED, they would be able to realize tremendous energy savings, and then leverage these savings to fund future smart infrastructure projects including sustainable buildings, optimized energy-efficient HVAC systems, and more.
“Siemens is committed to helping our community customers achieve their energy savings goals. The TerraGo StreetlightOps reporting features help us monitor progress and manage performance, so we can help communities realize the benefits that will help shape a smarter, more sustainable future.”

TerraGo StreetlightOps software was utilized to rapidly deploy and efficiently maintain thousands of streetlights, including Ubicquia smart lighting controls, across all four New York municipalities. These new, smart light fixtures have reduced monthly energy costs over 70%, from $28 per light to $8 per light, producing tremendous savings that will be reinvested into other smart infrastructure programs.
TerraGo StreetlightOps helped Siemens track progress and ultimately accelerate energy savings for these communities. TerraGo’s built-in data analytics and reporting enabled Siemens to continuously monitor key performance indicators and deliver timely reports to all community stakeholders.
“TerraGo’s ability to present a birds-eye view of the entire scope of work across all four communities was invaluable in helping us keep these programs on-time and on-track.”
