Tiruchirappalli is the fourth largest Municipal Corporation in Tamil Nadu. The city was illuminated with 39,173 Streetlights, out of which LED comprises of about 78.36%, sodium vapor lamp (SVL) of about 18.85% and the other luminaries of about 2.79%. Out of connected load 2.71 MW, the energy consumption of these LED and SVL streetlights were about 97.2% of the total power consumption.
During the year April 2014, an initiative had been undertaken by the City Corporation, on Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode, to replace all the conventional FTL streetlights by high efficacy luminaries, reassess the pole spacing and pole locations, and thereby providing better illumination and improving public safety on the streets and roads, apart from the energy savings.
