LED LIGHTS ON ALL GURUGRAM ROADS SOON
The installation of LED streetlights has finally begun in Gurugram, after a delay of over two months. The whole city will be covered under the project by the end of May, said MCG (Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon) officials.
The project is being implemented by stateowned Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL), which signed a deal with MCG to install over 48,000 LED streetlights under the National Street Lighting Programme in October 2017. The project was to be completed by February 2018.
“In the first leg, Ward Numbers 1 and 35 have been chosen. The second leg will cover Ward Numbers 2 and 34. This will continue till the whole city is covered,” said MCG commissioner Yashpal Yadav.
At present, all main roads in Gurugram have sodium streetlights and other roads have CFL, T5 and mercury lights. The project will help the city save 13 million units of power per year, and MCG is expecting a 45-55 per cent saving on power bills too.
