‘90% of streetlights replaced by LEDs’

Panaji: Close to 90% of conventional streetlights in the state have been replaced with LED lighting. The entire exercise is expected to be complete by September, said N Mohan, senior manager (technical) EESL, which is managing the project through its implementing partners.

Of the 1.7 lakh LED lights replaced, around 2,000 have required maintenance work after the onset of the monsoon. This, Mohan said, has been addressed swiftly through maintenance teams that have been increased in the state.

EESL is also offering smart streetlight controllers to replace conventional switch points. These will ensure remote on/of operations and permit viewing of real-time energy consumption. The LED streetlights are expected to save close to 12 megawatts and 58 million units per annum in the state. tnn
