As a part of their energy conservation plan, West Bengal could be switching over to LEDs for their street lights, possibly making them the first state in India to do so. The whole story at West Bengal may probably become the first state in the country to switch to LED-based street lights over the next five years as part of an energy conservation drive. "We have been indicated that the state wishes to switch to LED-based street lighting across the state over the next five years in association with us," Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL) Managing Director, Saurabh Kumar told PTI. All forms of street lights, mostly sodium vapour lights, will be replaced by intelligent LEDs offering huge savings in energy consumption. Before moving to districts, the project will replace three lakh street lights of the metropolis and Nabadiganta, the IT-hub, which will become the world's largest in terms of coverage of street lights, Kumar said. Business-Standard
