Alternative Energy Project brings more street lighting to rural areas

September 24, 2016 – 14:29 AMT

PanARMENIAN.Net – The Foundation for the Preservation of Wildlife and Cultural Assets (FPWC) and VivaCell-MTS have summed up the results of another joint program implemented in the framework of the Alternative Energy Project. An outdoor lighting system, consisting of 54 LED lamps, has been installed in Amrakits community of Lori province. As a result of the implemented project, two main streets of the community have been provided with a street lighting system stretching about 1,900 meters.

General Engineer and Project Manager Martin Maralchyan, VivaCell-MTS General Manager Ralph Yirikian, head of Amrakits community Arthur Nerkararyan and residents attended the launch of the system.

The environmentally friendly and energy efficient LED lights will reduce outdoor lighting costs by up to 80%.

Outdoor lighting will be provided from 8:00 pm to midnight in summer, and from 6:00 pm to 11:00pm in winter. On holidays, street lighting will be provided all night long.

LED bulbs are efficient and durable, and last much longer than the regular ones.

“Creating solutions for environmental protection and applying them in real life is among the top priorities on the agenda of the world’s developed countries,” VivaCell-MTS General Manager Ralph Yirikian said.

“The caring attitude towards nature and the denial of consumerism are important criteria for measuring the level of consciousness of a person, a nation, or a country. The usage of alternative energy sources, apart from its financial benefits, is a huge step towards a more responsible and civilized lifestyle.”

The use of latest technologies in environmental protection initiatives promotes nature conservation, energy efficiency and community development.
