Marbella Town Hall is replacing 135 light points on Paseo de La Alameda and Avenida del Mar for low-consumption lighting with a computerized intensity regulation system depending on the time, which will reduce CO2 emissions into the atmosphere, in this case by 25 tons per year, and spending by more than 10,000 euros each year.
The Councilor for Works, Diego Lopezexplained that the action, which is part of the Energy Efficiency Plan that is being carried out throughout the municipality, “allows us to continue advancing in our commitment to sustainability and the environment while maintaining lighting levels and improving uniformity on the streets”.
The mayor, who has indicated that the work is being carried out with his own means, has detailed that, on Paseo de La Alameda, the intervention consists of the replacement of 82 streetlights with 150-watt metal halide lamps for streetlights with LED technology. 60 watts, “which produces a reduction of 37,861 kilowatts per year and represents a annual financial savings of 6,057.83 euros”. In the case of Avenida del Mar, a total of 53 devices will be changed in this case for 38-watt LED technology, “with a decrease in spending of 29,156 kilowatts each year and 4,664.99 euros in the same period.”
Lastly, he emphasized that “in order to reduce consumption at night, when less use is made of roads and pedestrian areas, all the lights have a software that will manage the light flow based on the fringe schedule”. “Our objective is to continue betting on lighting that will contribute to beautifying emblematic enclaves in the city center due to its greater warmth and homogeneity, while at the same time taking care of our natural resources”, he added.
