All street lights to use LED by September this year


The nationwide move, which will see a switch from the traditional light bulbs to LED units, is said to be able to save as much as 50% of energy.

The pilot project will go on for three months after the tender process for contractors is completed some time in June. The pilot project will take place in Ampang, the constituency of Housing and Local Government Minister, Zuraida Kamaruddin.

Nationwide implementation of LED street lights is expected to take place, in stages, by September.

As of now, The Star reported that 80% of streetlamps in Malaysia are using non-LED lighting but is said to still be more energy efficient than the traditional bulbs.

The ministry is also looking to have illuminated signage on shops and buildings changed to LED lighting as well.
