Ameresco: Chicago and Toronto

Ameresco is one of the world’s leading energy efficiency and renewable energy firms. When the company was awarded the Chicago smart streetlight project, the largest city-led program in US history, they turned to TerraGo Streetlights for the mobile field applications to get the job done. Being used to install over a quarter-million smart streetlights in Chicago, TerraGo Streetlights is helping Ameresco complete installations faster, reduce errors and lower maintenance costs.

Ameresco and TerraGo’s collaboration also resulted in a 2018 Smart 50 Award for the Richmond Hill (Toronto), Ontario project, where the field application enabled auto-commissioning with Itron’s Streetlight.Vision central management system and slashed average commissioning times from 2 days to under 2 minutes.
