August 20, 2015: The Union Ministry of Urban Development, Government of India, has asked all state governments to replace conventional streetlights with LED lights. The entire country has 27.5 million streetlights, and shifting to LED light will save more than 5,000 MW of electricity consumption over a period of three years.
This mandate from the ministry came after Bureau of Energy efficiency (BEE) released a survey on the street lights of India. According to the report, more than 80% of streetlights in India have been installed in a wrong way without considering the pole distance, type and height of the light, among other things. The report said that not only the lighting needs to be changed but every aspect of the streetlights need to be overhauled.
Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL) has been appointed to undertake the project of financing and installing the LED streetlights in the country. All the streetlights in every state will be changed in a phased manner.
