As per my observation, the streetlights in Sector 22, Dwarka need to be replaced. I found that around 60-70 per cent of old sodium lights in Sector 22 are working, however, it is a waste of energy as compared to LED lights.
One LED bulb is sufficient for illumination as compared to three sodium lights in a row.
While observing the condition of lights across the sector and after communication with the field team, I found that the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) is not helping the BSES (responsible for street lights) with these power gulping sodium lights.
On the other hand, it would be more effective once proper pruning of overgrown trees is done as I have noticed that pruning has been done in around 50 per cent of stretches so far in Sector 22.
I request the civic bodies and especially the area councillor Kamaljeet Sehrawat to follow up and push the subject further for an effective solution.
In this regard, I would like to say that all CGHS/RWA may also write to DDA Vice Chairman for an immediate solution.
