Solar Energy Lightening Kathmandu For SAARC Summit occassion

Leave a Comment
For the preparation of upcoming SAARC summit in Kathmandu, most of the major streets are equipped with solar lights on the way from Tribhuvan International Airport to Maitighar, Thapathali to Soaltee Mode, Maitighar to City Hall and Tundikhel to Ranipokhari, Tripureshwor to Jamal. The government has spent about Rs 680 million for city beautification project.

A basic unit of solar-powered street lamp, including lamppost, solar panel, battery, and bulb, costs around Rs 55,000. The LED bulbs can give about six hours of full backup lights that could make the city bright even at the time of loadshedding (But we will have more than 10 hours of loadshedding in coming days :) ).

As most of the public property (some over-hyped) are damaged in many ways because of lack of security and responsibility of concerned authority. Even general people destroy public properties intentionally even in the name of protest for bringing about social and political change.

In such context, do you think the solar lamp will remain as they are now for next year?
