Schréder Launches Owlet(TM) Intelligent Street and Area Lighting Control System
Elk Grove Village--- Dimming street lights in off-peak times can save up to 30 percent in energy costs, but utilities need a reliable method of metering an area's street lights to be able to credit the city for their energy savings. Street and area lighting will never be the same as Schréder Lighting US General Manager John Camp has announced the launch of the Owlet(TM) Intelligent Street and Area Lighting Control System, across the US and Canada. OWLET's onboard Metering Chipset monitors and reports power usage with a plus-2 or minus-2 percent accuracy, which is acceptable to most utilities.
