Agartala, Vizag get street smart as government’s LED scheme catches on

  • The government’s ambitious plan to replace conventional street lights with energy-efficient LED lamps in cities is gathering momentum under the Street Light National Programme.
  • The installation is in progress in 88 ULBs in Delhi, Rajasthan and Andhra Pradesh to replace 9.3 lakh lights.
  • The service model enables the municipalities to go in for state-of-the-art street lights with no upfront capital cost and repayments to EESL.
  • EESL’s contracts with municipalities are typically of 7-year duration where it not only guarantees a minimum energy saving, but also provides free replacements and maintenance of lights at no additional costs to the municipalities.
