The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation reduced its electricity bill for street lighting by Rs 152.96 crore after switching from conventional lighting methods to LED lights, Minister for IT, Industries, Municipal Administration & Urban Development KT Rama Rao informed the Assembly on Wednesday.

He said 4,32,901 conventional streetlights were replaced with LEDs. This resulted in energy savings of 216.50 million units between July 2017 and July 2019. Rama Rao also said the government would look into complaints of lack of maintenance of the streetlights by Energy Efficiency Services Limited of GoI which, according to Kaleru Venkatesh of TRS, had sub-contracted the maintenance to private parties.
