The District has cut down its list of companies vying to upgrade streetlights in the city with more than 75,000 LED lights.
The Office of Public Private Partnerships and the District Department of Transportation said they will select one of three companies to develop high-tech streetlights that will also include wi-fi access points and the ability to be monitored remotely. The streetlight overhaul has been dubbed the “Safer. Smarter. Greener” initiative. Currently, roughly 5% of the city’s streetlights use LED technology.
Eleven companies in all responded to the city’s Request for Qualifications for the Project. The three finalists are:
- DC Smart Lightning Partners II (Star America Fund GP, Aldridge Electric, Fluor Enterprises, WSP, Chesapeake Electric Systems, Sharp & Company, Business Transformation Group)
- MAB Smart Solutions (Meridiam Smart Solutions, Ameresco, Broadspectrum Infrastructure, Parsons Transportation Group, C3M Power Systems, Monrad Engineering, L.S. Caldwell & Associates, S2N Technology Group)
- Plenary Infrastructure DC (Plenary Group USA Concessions, Kiewit Development Company, OpTerra Energy Services, Mass Electric Company, Indigo Mid-Atlantic, Engie Services)
