Street Light Consulting & LED Solutions
With Troy & Banks' experience in the national regulated landscape, municipalities can benefit from our forensic audit which searches for errors and overbilling. The forensic audits clean up billing issues that may have existed for many years. This ensures the municipality begins a street light conversion on a "clean slate". Additionally, Troy & Banks conducts geographic information system (GIS) driven investment grade field audits which deliver the foundational documents necessary to prepare cost benefit assessments for purchasing and owning municipal street light systems. These GIS audits are relied upon by lighting engineers and designers to ensure proper lighting throughout a municipality.
The Municipal Lighting Plan looks like the following:
Do a thorough and complete inventory of lighting infrastructure: quantity, wattage, condition and location
GIS coordinated audit recommended so municipality has entire system digitized
Determine who owns what (utility or municipality)
Compare lighting level standards and municipality needs
Assess where current lighting is good (meets standards), over lit or under lit
Develop a lighting plan that best balances street lighting objectives
Put the lighting strategy into action
Save energy and money, improve lighting and achieve sustainability goals
Street Light Collection Services:
Troy & Banks has the capabilities to either create a new GIS dataset by collecting data from 'scratch' or attempt to reconcile existing GIS data with what exists in the field.
We will conduct a Street Light Inventory Survey of a clients existing streetlights using ESRI Web GIS Collector or Field Maps apps that instantly upload pin-point accurate data collections to our project manager via a combination of ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS Pro. A user friendly ArcGIS Online Dashboard link will be shared to allow the Client to track survey progress in real time.

A. Pole Number
B. Pole Material
C. Fixture tech (HPS,HID,LED, etc.)
