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.
