Swiss municipality in Ticino canton, Chiasso counts about 8,5 thousand inhabitants. The City is strongly committed to sustainability and innovation, and was awarded with the «Energy City» label for its forward-looking energy efficiency policies. Together with AGE SA, the local utility managing water, electricity, gas distribution in the area, Chiasso is always looking for new ways to achieve higher green targets.
In 2013, the City started to invest on its street lighting infrastructure to reduce energy consumption, pilot future proof technologies and improve quality of service. The Smart Lighting project was kicked off by replacing existing lamps with LED devices and implementing PE Smart Urban Network as advanced system for remote monitoring and control. Latest deployments were made in 2015 in Via Dante Alighieri, prominent arterial road in the city center, and the Smart Lighting infrastructure now covers multiple areas of the City, ie. the ring road, a portion of the city center, some municipal buildings and sports facilities.
