Cuttack, the former capital of Odisha, is going to start its LED street lighting project soon. The Cuttack Municipal Corporation (CMC) will replace the 17,000 streetlights with LED at a cost of Rs 20 crore.
LED streetlights will not only reduce the electricity costs but also improve the visibility on the roads. Currently, CMC is paying Rs 40 lakh per month for streetlights electricity. With the introduction of LED, the bill will be reduced by 50 per cent.
