- Replacement of road lighting lamps
In Deryneia Municipality, approximately 2.000 lamps of high pressure sodium road lighting have been replaced with LED energy saving and environmentally friendly lamps. Costs amounted to approximately €240.000. It is estimated that the energy savings will reach 50% in the electricity consumption, about €48.000 annually. Also the maintenance cost for the next 8 years will be reduced by €85.000.
Two photovoltaic systems were installed, one in the Town Hall and one in the Senior Citizens Centre at a cost of €5.500 each. The Photovoltaic Systems will reduce electricity consumption in both buildings.
