All street lights in all municipal corporations will be replaced by LED lights, said chief minister Devendra Fadnavis.

This replacement will be done in the state as part of the Centre’s Street Light National Programme (SLNP).

For this initiative the Urban Development Department (UDD) and the Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to install 20 lakh LED streetlight across the state. This move is estimated to save 500 MW of power and the electricity bill is expected to reduce by at least 50 per cent, said an official.

As per the agreement LED lights will be set up in the streets of all major cities of the state, including Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, Thane, Pune, Nashik, Aurangabad, Nagpur, Kolhapur, Satara, Sangli and Nanded.

Under the project the existing sodium vapour, mercury vapour bulbs will be replaced by LED bulbs, and the lights will be maintained for seven year period. Fadnavis said that the replacement of the bulbs will be completed by the end of December 2018.
