Goa in India Rolls out Large LED Streetlight Replacement Project

Western Indian state Goa has rolled out a large scale streetlight replacement project, and replaced existing compact fluorescent lights (CFL) and high pressure sodium vapor (HPSV) lamps with LED bulbs, reported Times of India.

The bulbs are being installed by the electricity department through Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL).

The agency completed installing 35,000 streetlights out of the state’s total 166,000 streetlights, which is projected to help the state save INR 1.28 billion (US $18.77 million).

“Monthly repayments by GED (Goa Electricity Department) to EESL will be paid through savings on energy and maintenance cost. There will be net saving of around 127.96 crore to GED over a period of 10 years until expiry of warranty period,” The Indian Express quoted Additional Chief Engineer, GED, N N Reddy saying.

The lighting fixtures are monitored through a separate centralized control and monitoring systems (CCMS), which can remotely turn on or off the lights. This can help the electricity department spend less time on repairing streetlights.

The department will also start selling LED bulbs in the next few months, which will be distributed free of cost under the ‘Jyotirmay Goa’ scheme.
