Pune, 2nd November 2022: The city council has devised yet another strategy to save money and energy in the streetlight system. It did the same thing five years ago, spending crores of rupees. Its current mechanism has been recognised. Civic activists slammed the new plan as a waste of taxpayer dollars. The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) could proceed with the plan if the new company takes responsibility for lowering the energy bill.


The PMC claimed that the Union government-awarded Pune Smart Pune Street Lighting project is not smart enough to save energy and money. As a result, it intends to replace existing LEDs and fittings with dimming components.



Tata Company replaced 90,000 fittings and installed LEDs as part of the Smart Pune Street Lighting project in 2016 to reduce energy bills and expenditure on old, expensive fittings. After more than five years, the fittings will be replaced again at a cost of around Rs 20 crore.


According to city officials, the city has 1,40,000 lampposts. In total, 90,000 streetlight fittings were replaced in 2016. The project was completed through a public-private partnership (PPP) and cost Rs 16 crore. It included the replacement of incandescent light bulbs with energy-saving LEDs. The manual feeder panels were also replaced with energy monitor and control panels based on supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA).
