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
