In recent years, intelligent transportation systems (ITS) have improved road safety. This has led to new communication systems such as vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) and vehicle-to-vehicle. This technology has attracted the attention of many researchers due to its deployment cost and energy efficiency challenges. Roadside units (RSUs) powered by renewable energy are mainly concerned with energy efficiency because of the intermittency of renewable energy resources. This paper proposes a solution for energy efficiency in the V2I network to minimize the energy consumption of RSUs deployed in an urban area. The problem has been formulated as an RSU transmission control problem based on the traffic flow at road intersections. This method is compared with the traditional RSU transmission mode, and the study is conducted in two phases. The first phase is to model a section of the road network of Nairobi using OpenStreetMap and SUMO. The second phase is to define and validate the solution`s effectiveness in terms of connectivity, energy consumption, packet delivery ratio (PDR), and average downlink end-to-end delay. The results show that the proposed solution is energy efficient for small and large packets and has good communication performance.
