Sun Star Bacolod - - Top Stories - BY MERLINDA A. PEDROSA

BA­COLOD City Coun­cilor Em Ang urged the City En­gi­neer’s Of­fice (CEO) to up­grade the city’s street light­ing sys­tem by in­stalling so­lar­pow­ered light emit­ting diode (LED) street lights all over the city.

Ang, chair­per­son of the City Coun­cil com­mit­tee on tourism, said yes­ter­day the so­lar-pow­ered LED street lights are en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly be­cause they are solely de­pen­dent on the heat en­ergy is given off by the sun.

“They are also en­ergy and cost ef­fi­cient be­cause they are main­te­nance free and last more than 13 years or 50,000 hours,” she said.

She added the use of so­lar-pow­ered LED street lights will also pro­vide a whiter light that pro­motes bet­ter vis­ual acu­ity that will make a clearer and eas­ier to de­ci­pher between ob­jects at night.

Ang added it will be ben­e­fi­cial for the city to up­grade the street light­ing sys­tem by in­stalling so­lar-pow­ered LED street lights all over the city be­cause it will sig­nif­i­cantly re­duce the city’s elec­tri­cal and main­te­nance ex­penses for street lights./map
