Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for replacing street lights with 60,000 LED bulbs.

Apart from GDA, the move is said to be followed by other local bodies to set up LED bulbs.

GDA Vice Chairperson Ritu Mesheshwari said to replace about 30,000 streetlight in the areas coming up within the GDA’s jurisdiction in the next phase.

“We have forwarded a proposal to this effect to the government and are awaiting a response,” Maheshwari added.

The Uttar Pradesh Government earlier announced to install 40 lakh smart electricity meters in Ghaziabad.

Speaking about it, Maheshwari said, “Under this project, Ghaziabad will get 2 lakh meters and these will be installed later. The move to convert all existing streetlights with LED bulbs and switching to smart meters will help reduce energy consumption and ensure better monitoring.”

The smart meters can digitally send meter readings to the electricity supplier for more accurate billing.

It has been learnt that as many citizens have already installed smart meters, which enable a pay and use facility. They can further recharge the meters and consume units as per the recharge amount.
