Current adds to street light and IoT projects across Southern California
December 10, 2018 / Maury Wright
Current, powered by GE has announced an expansion of its LED street-light projects in Southern California with the latest work spanning benefits including energy efficiency, accurate billing, Internet-of-Things (IoT)-enabled smart city applications, creative financing, and dark-sky friendly solid-state lighting (SSL). The city of San Diego is in the midst of growing its wirelessly-connected street light portfolio to 14,000 nodes, and more than 4000 of those poles will also feature Current CityIQ nodes for IoT functionality. Meanwhile, the Western Riverside Council of Governments (WRCOG) is managing the efforts of eleven Riverside County municipalities to purchase street lighting assets from utility Southern California Edison (SCE), and retrofit those street light poles with LED luminaires from Current. The projects indicate that it is business as usual at Current despite the fact that the company is set to be acquired by American Industrial Partners (AIP).
