14 solar street lights installed by RA using state grant

 

PETALING JAYA (Dec 10): Using a state grant, the Bandar Utama 12 Residents Association installed 14 solar-powered lights in the neighbourhood.

The Star reports that Association chairman Thavarajah Sathasivam said they had applied for the Selangor government’s Green Technology Small Grant 2019 earlier this year.

“The proposal was to instal 14 solar- powered street lights. The grant was approved last August,” he was quoted as saying.

Worth RM10,000, the grant was awarded for 4m-high street lights and some solar-powered beacon lights for the security checkpoint.

“We installed the street lights at the back lanes and side lanes of the neighborhood which were barely visible at night, ” he said.

“One could get hurt if he is not careful, as there are two drains that are not clearly visible at night.

“We chose solar-powered street lights because we wanted to do our part for the environment and tackle climate change.”
