December 25, 2014: With the aim to make Delhi, the capital of India, a smart city, Union Urban Development Minister M Venkaiah Naidu and Union Power, Coal and New and Renewable Energy Minister Piyush Goel launched a pilot project to convert street lighting from traditional system to LED lighting system, which is environment-friendly and energy-efficient.
With the implementation of the Union Ministry of Power project, the government will save about 25 crore units of electricity, and its value will be Rs 700 crore. This project will replace nearly 5 lakh street lights in Delhi with LED lamps
The project will be launched in phases in Delhi. It will be first started in North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC), and will then be extended to the rest of the civic bodies in Delhi, which include South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC), East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC), New Delhi Municipal Council and the Cantonment Board, for the Delhi Cantonment area.
In NDMC, the project will be implemented by the Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL), a joint venture company of the PSUs under the Ministry of Power.
“The LED street light project will be extended to the whole country, especially in the areas where there is no light and where poor people live,” Piyush Goel said.
