New lights for old in Los Cristianos
Arona council is continuing with the process of replacing the old lighting fixtures of the municipality, which has allowed, among other measures, to reduce the electricity consumption by the public services of the corporation, equivalent to almost 50 tons of oil in the last three years.
The last of these actions, which has been developed in the gardens next to the preferred bus stop of Los Cristianos, has consisted of the replacement of the old points of light and the installation of new ones.
In total, 21 lights have been replaced and another 30 new ones have been installed, with an increase in consumption of just 145 watts, thanks to the use of low consumption LED technology.
The deputy mayor and councillor of the environment, José Luis Gómez, explained that “in these almost four years of mandate, we have been replacing public lighting in all the localities of Arona with new, more efficient ones and of lower consumption. These works, as small as they may seem, are very important to improve the quality of life of citizens, especially in school or sports environments that did not have lighting and now have it and through which hundreds of children and children pass daily.”
