Undertaken as an initiative of Government of Rajasthan and Jaipur Nagar Nigam (JNN), the project targets replacing all the conventional street lights under JNN jurisdiction by high efficacy Samudra LED street lights. Also in future, all the lights, which will come under the jurisdiction of JNN will be replaced by Samudra LED lights. Samudra LED based Energy Saving Project is rated by IFC as one of the largest ESCO projects based on actual savings.
Its uniqueness lies in the fact that it is an environment friendly implementation—no lead, no mercury or any poisonous gas.
Apart from energy savings and providing better illumination improving public safety on the roads, this project comes without any capex to the governemnt and JNN. Saved energy can be utilised for other important sectors, particularly illuminating the rural areas.
Based on the energy audit and power consumption pattern, Samudra LED replaced existing conventional fixtures consuming 48 W to 550 W of energy with LED fixtures 5 W to 112 W only to provide better illumination and higher energy savings. This has ensured achievement of 77.13 per cent energy savings.
Introduction of CCMS has led to increased accountability and made the process of identifying failures accurate and fast, thereby reducing the turnaround time of repairs and maintenance. The results are visible:
