PETALING JAYA (Aug 3): Selangor has “kickstarted” a programme to help residential buildings in the state save up to 80% in energy consumption with no upfront costs.

Part of the Smart Selangor initiative, Synergy Group and ODESI will assist the state authorities to install LED lights in more than 8,000 strata buildings involving up to 12 city councils involving the Light Source in Darkness programme, according to a joint statement.

The Light Source in Darkness effort also falls under Lembaga Perumahan dan Hartanah Selangor’s (LPHS) wider Green Initiative Program, with the ultimate goal of making Selangor a more liveable Smart and Green State by 2025.

The programme was officially kicked off with a handshake ceremony on Sunday at Pangsapuri Salvia in Kota Damansara, the first development to enjoy this programme in Petaling Jaya.

“Selangor takes pride in being one of the first states to drive an initiative that will see a better, greener future as well as generate savings for its people and the management of strata buildings, said Selangor State Executive Councillor for Housing, Urban Wellbeing and Entrepreneur Development, Rodziah Ismail at the event.

She also urged all joint management bodies and management corporations to participate in this programme as they can enjoy savings at zero upfront cost.

“We definitely hope we will be seen as an exemplary state for our efforts and look forward to reaping the benefits,” added Rodziah.

“Apart from the savings already garnered from this programme, the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) adopted the Low Carbon Cities Framework, offering home owners who have taken the initiative in making their homes more green and environmentally friendly to enjoy tax rebates,” said MBPJ, Director Commissioner of Buildings, Jayanthi a/p Kuppusamy who was also at the event.

“This scheme shares the same goals to ensure that Selangor becomes a low carbon emission Smart City by 2025,” she added.

Meanwhile, Aaron Wong of Synergy Group said: “Pangsapuri Salvia is our first condominium in Petaling Jaya that has benefited from this programme. Not only does it help the building in terms of reducing capital expenditure and operating expense, but also further facilitates the Selangor state government in achieving a sustainable and greener city.”

The event also saw a tree planting ceremony and the burying of a time capsule containing wishes from LPHS, MBPJ, Synergy and ODESI that will be opened in 10 years.

According to the statement, Synergy Group “offers the most durable and patented LED lighting with a 10-year lifespan and saves up to 80% more energy than other lights in the market”.
