Solar street lights to brighten up KovalamThe Tourism Department has taken the initiative to light up Kovalam, the city’s numero uno tourist hot spot, with solar street lights as part of the master plan prepared for the comprehensive development of the popular haunt. The new system will not have any such complaints as the lights are powered by solar energy. This is expected to prove successful and so we will install it at other tourist destinations soon,” said Kadakampally.
The first solar light was installed near the Napier Museum and 37 solar lights were installed at the Veli Tourism Village here. Next up, the focus is on implementing the lights on the Shanghumughom Beach premises. The company has submitted the feasibility study for implementing the project at Shanghumughom to the Tourism Department.
This system of remote monitoring and operation of street lights from a central station is based on the GSM/GPRS technology on which mobile phones work. Currently, a timer has been implemented in the system to control it which can be modified to online or automatic control based on the requirements.
