Lighting up Puerto Princesa

Font Size

PUERTO PRINCESA became the first city in the Philippines that has installed connected LED lighting, thanks to Signify, Meralco MSERV and its local government unit.

The first 42 LED smart street lights were installed last March 6. Once completed, there will be 740 60-W Roadflair LEDs managed with Interact City — an LED lighting management software that allows a city to manage public lighting infrastructure.

The implementation of Interact City is part of Puerto Princesa’s road lighting program aimed to make Palawan’s capital more livable and progressive.

“As the first city with connected LED lighting in the Philippines, Puerto Princesa has enhanced its safety and beautified the public spaces… Harnessing the power of the Internet of Things, Interact City is able to monitor and measure electricity, helping lighting and city managers to adjust usage and help plan maintenance,” Jagan Srinivasan, country manager of Signify Philippines, said in a statement.
