FPL Selects Silver Spring for North America’s Largest Networked Street Lights Deployment

Earlier this year, Silver Spring announced it was selected by Florida Power & Light (FPL) for the largest networked street lights deployment under contract in North America. FPL is deploying Silver Spring’s IPv6 networking platform to connect and control 75,000 street lights in the Miami-Dade County region. FPL expects the remote monitoring and control capabilities of the system to significantly improve street light restoration response times and enhance the quality of service to its street light customers. This is part of FPL’s ongoing effort to modernize their power delivery system, including the nearly 500,000 street lights FPL maintains throughout the company’s 35-county service area.

In addition to Florida Power & Light, Silver Spring recently announced several smart street light projects including:

  • City of Copenhagen: in partnership with Citelum, networking 20,000 street lights in Copenhagen’s city center to deliver energy savings while potentially providing options and capabilities for a networking canopy for additional smart city applications in the future.
  • City of Glasgow: networking LED street lights, traffic cameras, and sensors for an adaptive lighting project that dynamically dims and increases illumination, helping improve urban sustainability and citizen safety in Glasgow’s city center and Clyde Walkway.
  • City of Paris: selected for an advanced street light and traffic control project connecting a complex array of street lights, street light control boxes, traffic signal control boxes, and other public lighting and traffic control infrastructure in the ‘City of Lights.’
