December 2015: Eon Electric Limited (EEL) – one of the leaders in manufacturing a wide range of energy-efficient LED Lighting products – has reached yet another milestone by securing an extension to the ongoing LED streetlights installation project. As part of the extended project, Eon will be installing additional 33,153 LED streetlights in the city.
Elaborating on the achievement, Mr V.P. Mahendru, Chairman – Eon Electric Limited, said, “It’s encouraging for EON Electric to be associated with the Government-sponsored Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL) project to transform conventional streetlights to LED lights in Jodhpur. Securing the extension on the ongoing project is an acknowledgment of EON’s performance in the initial cluster and its commitment to empower cities with energy-efficient lighting solutions. We wish to thank the Mayor of Jodhpur for honouring us with this achievement.”
Earlier this year, Eon Electric had secured contracts to install LED streetlights at Jodhpur and Aligarh in a competitive bid involving other leading players. The project is a part of the Rajasthan government initiative to conserve energy through replacement of conventional Lights by LED Lights. These streetlights have been installed with a Centrally Controlled System, which continuously monitors and reports satisfactory performance and energy conservation of these LED streetlights.
“LEDs are the future of lighting, having multiple advantages compared to other light sources, including features like long life, low maintenance, low voltage, energy efficiency and eco-friendly. Transforming these streetlights by using LEDs is part of the government’s long-term vision of 24X7 power for all.” adds Mr. Mahendru.
LED Streetlights ensure glare-free light for ease, comfort and safety on the road, while walking or driving. By preventing dark patches in between Streetlights, they safeguard pedestrians. This well-spread road light is especially important for the safety of children, women and elderly pedestrians, who may not be so well versed with street safety norms.
