11 municipal corporations have switched to the energy-saving LED streetlights with a central control system, said Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath at a function in Chief Minister’s Office (CMO).

For the demonstration purpose, lights in Lucknow and Varanasi were switched on through a web-based centralised control and monitoring system.

This initiative will save around 40 crore kilowatt of energy annually. Furthermore, this will reduce 35 crore tons of annual carbon dioxide emission, which will lead to the saving of Rs 280 crore, said the minister.

About 575,000 conventional street lights have already been replaced by LEDs since September 2017 under Center’s Street Light National Programme, said Rajeev Sharma, Chairman, Energy Efficiency Services Limited.

These streetlights include 1.4 lakh streetlights in Lucknow, 38,500 in Varanasi, and 4,700 heritage LED streetlight systems under HRIDAY scheme. Other cities are Allahabad, Aligarh, Meerut, Firozabad, Mathura-Vrindavan, Gorakhpur, Jhansi, Kanpur and Agra.
