The municipality of Gunskirchen decided to refurbish the street lighting system to energy-efficient LED technology using EPC, since it recognised that its street lighting system required significant refurbishment work and that the technology currently in use would soon be affected by the phasing out of lamps. The objective of the project was to find a good solution for every street. For the implementation, the municipality hired a planner who carried out a tendering procedure. Five ESCOs were invited to bid and all submitted for the call.

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.
