    THANE: In a move to save energy, the Thane civic body is planning to replace the sodium-vapour streetlights with LED bulbs. This move will not only help save electricity, but also earn some revenue for the TMC. There are nearly 32,500 streetlights in the city, of which 7,200 are powered by LED bulbs since 2012.

    After receiving a good response, the TMC plans to replace the remaining streetlights with LED bulbs.

    This will be done in phases. The streetlights will be fitted with sensors which will help the lamps get activated based on the natural light available.

    This means that the light will brighten up depending on the brightness of the area. This will reduce consumption of power and will also cut down costs.
