Fact sheet On Street light national programme (SLNP)

SLNP scheme- Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi launched 100 cities National Programme on 5th January to convert conventional street and domestic lights with energy efficient LED lights. Under Street Light National Programme (SLNP), replacement of 3.5 crore conventional street light will result in saving of 9,000 million units annually. Total cost savings of municipalities every year will be Rs 5,500 crore.  Keeping future generations in mind, the revolutionary step is taken to conserve as much energy as possible. Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) has been designated as the implementing agency. The initiative is part of the Government’s efforts to spread the message of energy efficiency in the country.

Objective of SLNP Programme

The Electricity Distribution Company and Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) a public sector body of Government of India are implementing the programme. The main objective is to promote efficient lighting, enhance awareness on using efficient equipment which reduce electricity bills and help preserve environment.

EESL replaces the conventional street lights with LEDs at its own costs and consequent reduction in energy and maintenance cost of the municipality is used to repay EESL over a period of time. The contracts that EESL enters into with Municipalities are typically of 7 years duration where it not only guarantees a minimum energy saving but also provides free replacements and maintenance of lights at no additional costs to the municipalities. The service model enables the municipalities to go in for the state of the art street light with no upfront capital cost and repayments to EESL are within the present level of expenditure. Thus there is no additional revenue expenditure required to be incurred by the municipality for change over to smart and energy efficient LED street lights.


Status of SLNP Programme


http://pibphoto.nic.in/documents/rlink/2015/sep/i201592402.jpgThe installation of LED bulbs is completed in 6 ULBs namely Vizag, Jhalawar, Mt. Abu, Pushkar, Neelimarna and Agartala. 2,07,000 street lights have been replaced in these places. Installation is in progress in 88 ULBs in Delhi, Rajasthan and Andhra Pradesh to replace 9.3 lakh lights. 302 Urban local bodies (ULBs) have enrolled in the Street Light National Programme till 7th September 2015. The target is to installs 15 lakh LEDs by March 2016. SLNP has finalized agreements with 90 municipalities.

Safety of LEDs - They are completely safe and do not represent any hazard to the human eye. When compared to CFLs, LEDs do not have mercury and therefore, have no negative impact on environment. The LEDs procured under the DELP scheme are run through series of stringent quality tests


Lumen intensity of LED vs incandescent bulb - LEDs have no gases, filaments or any moving parts to fatigue. A 7W LED procured under DELP gives the same and in most cases better lumen intensity and brightness than a 60W Incandescent Lamp. The lumen output of a 60 Watt incandescent bulb is 450 lumens. Whereas, the lumen output of a 7 watt LED bulb, offered as part of the DELP scheme, is 600 lumens. The proportion of lumens that falls in an area from an LED light source is greater than that of a conventional light source.
