Better, more cost-effective lights in rural communities

The state of street lighting in the municipality at the time of preparation of the energy audit does not meet the standard for street lighting.

The street lighting systems in the municipality in question, as it stands, does not provide the required minimum of sanitation standards. The relatively old lighting system, as well as its heavy maintenance, are the main reasons why it does not fully meet the requirements of the current standards. At present, the street lighting is realized with high-pressure sodium lamps, which are attached to a pillar net consisting of reinforced concrete and steel pipe columns.


  • Replace luminaries with latest generation LED
