Three Teams Shortlisted For DC Streetlights

Three teams were shortlisted on March 21 to compete for a 10-20 year DBFOM concession to modernize more than 75,000 streetlights in the District of Columbia by converting them to LED technology with remote monitoring and control capabilities.

An additional opportunity exists to incorporate smart city technologies in the light facilities that provide broadband WiFi, enhanced cell phone services, information kiosks and sensors, among other things. Such technologies could leverage the District’s 100-gigabit fiber network, DC-Net, or utilize privately owned data facilities.
