The South Indian city Chennai apparently leads the country in deployment of LED streetlights.
The Times of India, citing a policy note submitted before the state assembly, says the city corporation has installed a ‘record’ 48,034 LED streetlights.
The note says a Rs322-crore ($48.674-million) project is under way to install 1.10 lakh LED streetlights in expanded areas.
The corporation is replacing CFL bulbs and sodium vapour lamps on interior and arterial roads.
The corporation will complete installation of the remaining 61,966 LED streetlights before next March.
