It’s going to take a big investment, but the city council of Vizag is planning to change their streetlights with LEDs. VISAKHAPATNAM:

The Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation (GVMC) has mooted a proposal of illuminating all streets in the city with light emitting diode (LED) lights with an eye on saving energy and cutting costs. And if all goes as power plan, all 96,000 sodium vapour streetlights will be replaced with LEDs in a phased manner. The Union ministry of urban development will be financially assisting GVMC in taking up the project in the public-private partnership (PPP) mode. However, the proposal is still at the discussion stage and GVMC plans to only cover the existing 72 wards falling under six zones, excluding the newly-merged Bheemili and Anakapalle. Confirming these plans, GVMC commissioner MV Satyanarayana said that as per instructions from the Union ministry concerned, GVMC had drawn up proposals to illuminate all streets with LEDs but the project was still at a preliminary stage.
