LED streetlights by EESL enables energy savings in Haryana, MP

New Delhi (NVI): Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL), a joint venture under the Union Ministry of Power, has illuminated the streets of Haryana and Madhya Pradesh, while enabling considerable energy savings in the two states.

Through its Street Lighting National Programme, EESL has created a new energy paradigm in Haryana and MP, with immense emission reductions along with energy and savings.

Under the programme, Madhya Pradesh saw 1,05,868 LED streetlight installations that led to energy savings of 71.11 Mega Units (MU). The EESL initiative also helped the state to achieve a greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction of 0.5 million tCo2 and a further reduction of 11.85 megawatt peak.

Haryana also saw an equal number of LED installations and achieved similar levels on other parameters like GHG reduction, energy savings and electricity demand reduction.

Earlier this month, the Andhra Pradesh government said that EESL will be helping the state government in establishing solar plants with the capacity of 10,000 megawatts.
