The NDMC today launched from Rohini its ambitious project to replace over two lakh conventional street lights with LED fixtures in the next nine months, a move that will save Rs 50 crore of the civic body annually.
Delhi BJP president and Member of Parliament Manoj Tiwari inaugurated the project in the presence of Mayor and area councillor Preety Agarwal here.
Tiwari said the project would not only save Rs 50 crore annually on part of the North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) but also make the street lights energy efficient.
He said this saving would help NDMC spend it on other development works.
There are 2.05 lakh street lights in total in the NDMC area. Contract has been awarded for 1.15 lakh light fixtures in its two of the bigger zones – Rohini and Narela, the mayor said.
The entire conventional lighting system, semi half-mast lights and lights in parks of North Delhi will be replaced with LEDs. Read More…
