ArmInfo. The Foundation for the Preservation of Wildlife and Cultural Assets (FPWC) and VivaCell-MTS have summed up the results of yet another joint program implemented within the framework of "The Alternative Energy Project". An outdoor lighting system, consisting of 54 LED lamps, has been installed in Amrakic community of Lori region. As a result of the implemented project, two main streets of the community has been provided with a street lighting system about 1,900 meters, the press-service of VivaCell-MTS informs.
General Engineer and Project Manager Martin Maralchyan, VivaCell-MTS General Manager Ralph Yirikian, head of Amrakic community Arthur Nerkararyan, and community residents attended the launch of the system.
The environmentally friendly and energy efficient LED lights will reduce outdoor lighting costs up to 80%.
Outdoor lighting will be provided from 20:00 to 00:00 in summer, and from 18:00 to 23:00 in winter. On holidays, street lighting will be provided all night long. LED bulbs are efficient and durable, and last much longer than the regular ones.
"Creating solutions for environmental protection and applying them in real life is among the top priorities in the agenda of the developed countries in the world. The caring attitude towards nature and the denial of consumerism are important criteria for measuring the level of consciousness of a person, a nation, or a country. The usage of alternative energy sources, apart from its financial benefits, is a huge step towards a more responsible and civilized lifestyle," VivaCell-MTS General Manager Ralph Yirikian said.
The use of latest technologies in environmental protection initiatives promotes nature conservation, energy efficiency and community development.
