According to reports, Ontario International Airport in Canada (Ontario Airport) and Wilmington, Delaware, USA (Wilmington, Delaware) have switched to smart LED lighting systems.
Reports show that Ontario International Airport in Canada is replacing the traditional high-pressure sodium light poles in the parking lot and driveway with LED lighting solutions provided by SolarMax LED (headquartered in California) to provide a better customer experience and achieve The goal of saving energy.
At the same time, the LED lamps in the parking lot of Ontario International Airport have also been upgraded. Because the new LED light poles are equipped with dimming sensors, the brightness of the lamps will be reduced by half when no people are detected in an area for half an hour.
With the new lighting solution, Ontario International Airport will further save power consumption during low traffic hours while maintaining the minimum lighting level required by security cameras.
In addition, the city of Wilmington in the United States has reached a cooperation with energy company Delmarva Power to install smart lighting systems throughout the city.

The ultimate goal is to convert all 7050 sets of street lights in the city into LED street lights. After the project is completed, the city will save up to $150,000 per year.
Regarding the street lamp upgrade project, according to reports, the Argentine capital Buenos Aires started the street lamp replacement project in 2013.
