Thiruvananthapuram: Byroads, junctions and busy stretches in the state capital would be soon lit up with sophisticated LED lighting with the city corporation deciding to rope in an agency to implement a comprehensive automated street lighting project. It is learnt that Artco Ltd, a government-affiliated agency, has won the technical bid for the implementation of the project, which is worth Rs 16.5 crore.  The plan is to install around 400 LED lights at each of the hundred wards in the state capital.

“The proposal is yet to get the clearance from the council. The matter is getting delayed because of the elections. Hopefully, in the next corporation council, we get the nod for the project. The company has assured to bring down the power consumption by 1/3rd. Now we are paying around Rs 90 lakh per month to the KSEB and once the company takes over we will pay the amount to them,” said the official.

 

There are around 85000 street lights in the state capital. “KSEB will be installing around 40000 LED Lights and the rest of the lights would be maintained and installed by the new company,” said the official.  The official said that the company will open a control room. “They will replace the defunct light within 24 hours and they will be able to control the entire lighting system from the control room. The company will be paying the civic body 10 percent of the total energy savings,” the official added.
