The municipality Rohrbach-Berg highly recommends LED technology to other municipalities (Upper Austria)

Share this Post:

The street lighting project was originally planned in the municipality of Berg. After Berg and the neighbouring municipality of Rohrbach were amalgamated, the renovation project covered the whole street lighting of the former municipality of Berg and a part of Rohrbach. As a result, more lighting points were renovated than initially planned and agreed upon by the municipality and ESCO (139 instead of 121). The municipality’s main aim was to save electricity and use more efficient lighting technology. As parts of the streets are highly frequented by pedestrians, the municipality also wanted a suitable solution for pedestrian safety. As Rohrbach had already implemented two EPC projects in recent years, Berg benefited from their experience and know-how. The municipality is very satisfied and happy with its new streetlighting system and highly recommends LED technology to other municipalities.

 

This case study was developed in the context of the Eu Project Streetlight EPC, which is supported by the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme.
