Nashik gets over 90k LED lights for streets – Times of India
Nashik: The Nashik Municipal Smart City Development Corporation Ltd (NMSCDCL) has almost completed the task of replacing 91,200 streetlights from sodium-vapour to LED lights.
Officials said that only 800 streetlights remain to be replaced, which would be done by the end of this month. The project is being implemented on Public Private Partnership (PPP) model under the Union government’s Smart City mission.
The installation of the new LED lights would enable NMC to save around 60% on energy bills on streetlights for which it pays around Rs 2.75 cr a month to MSEDCL.
For road users, the visibility of the road would be better in new LED lights. “We have already completed almost 91% work of the smart streetlight project and remaining 1% of the streetlights are to be replaced with LED ones within a month,” said Sumant More, CEO, NMSCDCL.
The smart LED streetlights have been installed with functional features like remote dimming control, remote on-off option, timer, GPS Map representation.
The smart LED streetlights across city are to be monitored through Command Control Centre, which is being set up at Panchavati divisional office of NMC. The command control centre will monitor everything from timing of switching on and off of the lights as per guidelines defined by the National Lighting Code.
The project is envisaged on PPP mode to replace all the existing streetlights with smart LEDs and smart panels.
