A street light audit is a systematic procedure that includes data gathering and analysis related to existing lighting conditions, energy usage, lighting infrastructure, energy meters and other factors. Its key goals are to assess the lighting requirements, identify any current difficulties, and suggest potential for improvement. Furthermore, it seeks to optimize lighting configurations depending on road classifications, following standards such as IS 1944, to improve illumination and safety. One important result of this audit is the estimation of possible energy savings and expenses associated with various lighting control scenarios. The amount of information and complexity in completing a lighting energy audit might vary based on the scale, budget, and overall aims of the project.
