To make Mohali more smart the Mohali Municipal Corporation (MMC) has installed smart astronomical lights of expensive costs almost Rs 10 lakh.
These lights are programmed as per the rotation of the earth around the Sun; it means it can be automatically functioned as per day and night in each season. When the sun sets it blow automatically and been off when the sun rises.
The age span of these lights is more than next 50 years. These lights also save the electricity because in manual systems it takes more time to switch off all lights during the day.
All the streets light up automatically when sun set. The officer of MMC explained that various complaints of delay of light switch on/off has been solved with this system.
20 different systems installed in the locality and 80 are left. Rest will install soon. This project is called as “smart street light in the region”.
