EESL takes up first rural LED streetlighting project in Andhra Pradesh

Energy Efficiency Services Ltd. has initiated a French agency funded project to retrofit 10 lakh conventional street lights with LED lights in Gram Panchayats of 7 districts in Andhra Pradesh. This is the first project for rural LED street lighting in the country under the Centre’s Street Lighting National Project (SLNP).

This replacement drive in rural areas will help the gram panchayats to cumulatively save approximately 147 million units of electricity annually, and lead to reduction of 12 crore tonnes of CO2. The entire capital cost of this project is being funded by French Development Agency, Agence Française de Développement (AFD). Under 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.
