“We have placed the proposal before the government and expecting it to be cleared very soon. The plan is to replace all old sodium vapour lights with LED lights,” said Bidhannagar board of administrators member Sudhir Saha.
The LED works on very simple phenomena where voltage is applied to a semiconductor material to make electrons run loose from the material – in return, light energy is emitted in the form of particles known as photons.
The study is based on findings from the India Residential Energy Survey (IRES) 2020 conducted by CEEW in collaboration with the Initiative for Sustainable Energy Policy (ISEP) covering nearly 15,000 households across 152 districts in 21 states.
