Sapucaia do Sul is a municipality in the metropolitan region of Porto Alegre. The region is famous for its production of steel, metallurgy, beverages and textiles. The project seeks to modernize the city’s public lighting infrastructure by replacing its 12,000 public lighting points with Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology. Adoption of LED will address the twin challenges of high energy consumption and maintenance costs associated with conventional lighting. In addition, 20% of the modernized lighting points will be equipped for remote management, enabling the measurement and dimming of these selected points. Consequently, the city expects a 60% reduction in associated expenses.
The project will follow a phased approach: the first phase aims to setup the operational structure; the second consists of modernizing the public lighting network for LED technology and implementing smart city solutions; and the third entails the operation and maintenance of the public lighting network. Notably, the municipality has in place a public lighting contribution fee, COSIP Tax, which is charged directly to the consumers’ electricity bills. This tax provides a guaranteed financial resource for the payment of public lighting services, with its own legislative regulation.

This project consists of a Syndicated Urban Operation – the delimitation of an area where urban renewal is expected to be self-financed through the sale of building rights and other urban benefits. The area described in this project is heavily degraded in some parts, while it shows enormous potential for real estate development in others, where the purchase of building rights is already attractive for developers. The idea is that each round of building right sales provides the funds for urban improvements.
