Mahabubnagar (Nagarkurnool): The Municipality of Nagarkurnool and all the ‘nagarapanchayaties’ in Nagarkurnool district are expected to be soon illuminated with the LED lights. As part of this, recently, the urban local bodies (ULBs) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with some of the companies supplying LED bulbs.

According to senior officials of Nagarkurnool Municipality, the proposed LED lights will be installed in all the local bodies of Nagarkurnool district, which include Achampeta, Kolhapur, Kalwakurthy and Nagarkurnool. The commissioners of these four ‘nagarapanchayatis’ have entered into an agreement with representatives of Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) recently in Hyderabad in the presence of the commissioner of Municipal Administration department T.K. Sridevi.

The authorities have estimated the cost details and have assessed that the entire project will cost around Rs. 2.5 to Rs. 3.5 crore. If this project turns to be successful, all the streets and bylanes of all the local bodies in the district will get illuminated with LED lights in the next 3 months. The introduction of these lights will not only save a huge amount of money for paying electricity bills by public but also spare the municipality and other local bodies from appointing new staff to manage and maintain streetlights on a regular basis.

“Replacing regular street lights with LED bulbs is a very good move. We have been seeing streetlights always on even during day time. This is resulting in wastage of electricity and excessive power bills. If the LEDs are installed the power bills will come down less than 50 per cent and moreover we will also have less maintenance-cost since the company people will have to look after it for the initial 6 months” says Jayanth Kumar, Commissioner of Nagarkurnool Municipality.
