Salobreña is spending nearly a million euros on renovating the public-lighting system in Lobres and La Guardia, as well as the town itself.
Basically, the whole system is being converted from conventional lighting (mercury vapour lamps) to LED ones.
Obviously, it’s a major task so it’s being done in stages: Lobres, for example still has conventional lighting, where as the centre of Salobreña has already been swapped over.
But it’s not only a case of substituting one bulb for another one but also providing extra street lamps – there are 15 extra lamps along the Camino de la Acequia in Lobres, for example.
Although the project will cost a lot of money, it will also save it in the long run, as it is calculated that lower-consumption bulbs will shave off around 30% from the municipal electricity bill.
