Mayor Huang Weizhe said that the construction and management of street lamps is an important basis for providing citizens with a safer living environment. With the replacement of LED street lamps, not only electricity bills can be saved, but also energy saving and carbon reduction can be achieved. In addition, through intelligent Monitor the status of street lights in real-time, and save administrative procedures and maintenance costs at the same time. In the past, street lamps used more power-consuming sodium gas lamps. Because the operating temperature was as high as 400 degrees, a lot of energy was wasted due to high heat. After years of hard work by the Nanshi government, Datainan street lamps will soon be able to fully use LED lamps.
