Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL), under the Ministry of Power, will retrofit 10 lakh conventional street lights with LED lights in gram panchayats of seven districts in Andhra Pradesh. This is the first project for rural LED street lighting in the country under the Government of India’s Street Lighting National Project (SLNP).
The project to be implemented by EESL is specifically designed keeping in mind the needs of people living in villages. This replacement drive in rural areas will help the gram panchayats cumulatively save approximately 147 million units of electricity annually, and lead to reduction of 12 crore tonne of CO2. The entire upfront capital cost of this project is being funded by French Development Agency Agence Française de Développement (AFD). As part of the project, EESL has agreed to carry out the entire annual maintenance and warranty replacement in these gram panchayats for a period of 10 years.
Speaking on the occasion, Saurabh Kumar, Managing Director, EESL said, “EESL takes pride in announcing the first rural LED street lighting project in the country, and there could be no better place to begin this than Andhra Pradesh. The state has always welcomed our initiatives with open arms and has truly spearheaded the energy efficiency movement in the country. We would also like to extend our gratitude to AFD for the financial support in implementation of this project, without which it could not have achieved this scale.”
Through the installation of 10 lakh LED street lights, EESL has assured the state of approximately 59 per cent savings in electricity, which translates to an annual monetary savings of Rs 88.2 crore pa. In the first phase, the replacement will be undertaken in gram panchayats of 7 districts – Guntur, Prakasham, Nellore, Kurnool, Kadapa, Ananthapur and Chittoor.
