New Road next area to be lit the solar way2014-07-23 13:32:24


With the success of Durbarmarg solar street light project, Kathmandu metropolitan City now planes to install solar-powered street lamps in other major streets of the capital.
 
By the end of October, KMC plans to install solar street lights in new Baneshwor, new Road, and the street around Tundikhel. The project would cost an estimate Rs 40 million.
 
“Entire this stretches will have solar street lights under our SAARC beautification project,” said KMC head. 
The KMC’s recent city council has announced a budget of over RS 680 million for the SAARC beautification projects. The total budget of Rs 536 million will be injected by Nepal government.
 
Shrestha added that installation of solar street lights will also promote renewable energy, as envisaged by the Kathmandu Ujyalo karyakram, the project lunched by the KMC last year to light up the street of Kathmandu with solar-powered bulbs. Solar street lights have also been the priority in the KMC’s fiscal budget that was announced recently.
 
The KMC also plans to appeal for public private partnership investment in the project. In doing so, the KMC hopes to make the member of the public responsibility for public property and give them a sense of ownership. 

A basic unit of solar-powered street lamp, including lamppost, solar panel battery and bulbs, costs around Rs 55,000.
