May 27, 2022 – Trilliant and Energère have partnered with Ville de Granby, Que., to convert the city’s lighting network to LED lighting on an internet of things (IoT) platform.

Trilliant is a provider of utility solutions for advanced metering and smart grid systems, while Energère is an energy services company.

Energère will leverage Trilliant’s IoT platform as part of its solution for supporting the city’s upgrade of 5794 luminaires to LED technology. The city will integrate an intelligent lighting management system and install 3000K warm-white, connected lighting units.

Trilliant’s intelligent lighting control technology will enable real-time remote management of all lighting fixtures to optimize operations management.

“The City of Granby is excited to launch this project, which is part of a larger sustainable development approach,” said Mayor Julie Bourdon. “This lighting conversion will not only allow us to be more efficient and environmentally friendly, but will also improve the safety of our citizens and our roads by increasing visibility.”

The conversion will also decrease costs related to the maintenance and operation of the lighting network, added Bourdon.

The LED bulbs’ life span is 5x longer than that of the original bulbs, says Trilliant, adding that the Dark Sky certification of selected products will reduce the amount of light emitted upward, and limit light shining into residences.

The conversion is expected to reduce the city’s GHG emissions by about 96.5 tonnes of CO2e (carbon dioxide equivalent) over 25 years, which is the life span of the new lights.

“We’re pleased to work with Energère to assist the Ville de Granby with this important project,” said Steven Lupo, Trilliant’s managing director, Canada. “As cities and municipalities look to be more efficient and connected, our highly reliable systems can support them by driving energy efficiency, improving network reliability and lowering operating costs.”
