Cyprus Aims to Replace All Streetlights with LED by 2020

Cyprus, the island country on the Mediterranean Sea, is on its way to improve energy efficiency by switching all conventional streetlights into LED.

According to the report of CyprusMail, the Electricity Authority of Cyprus (EAC) has signed a contract to replace all existing lights in Larnaca. The contract will be executed by the end of August in 2019 with 1,500 streetlights switched to LED. The replacement is expected to save up to 67.56 percent of energy cost compared to current consumption.

Moreover, Yiangos Frangoulides, senior manager at the Electricity Authority (EAC), indicated that LED lights might replace all conventional streetlights in Cyprus by 2020. Currently, more than two-thirds of municipalities in Cyprus have already changed to LEDs. Among them, Nicosia and Aglandjia issued private tenders while other areas make direct agreements with the EAC.

The cost of the replacement project will be supported by a loan approved by the European Investment Bank and the cost will be recovered in less than two years, reported CyprusMail.

A smart lighting project was also carried out in Ayia Napa where it is packed with tourists in high season. With smart lighting system, the municipality could dim or turn off the lights in some areas when fewer people are around in low season to save energy cost as well as reduce light pollution.
