Burnham Park LED conversion project 95% complete


BAGUIO CITY: The City Environment and Parks Management Office (CEPMO) head Cordelia Lacsamana on Friday said the city expects a 50-60 percent reduction in the power consumption at the Burnham Park with the 95 percent completion of the Light Emitting Diode (LED) Conversion Project where about 285 LED bulbs and bollard lamps have been installed. Lacsamana said the project was part of the city’s continuing effort to make Baguio a climate change-resilient green city. The city government allocates more than P60 million annually for power consumption of the government facilities, including the parks and street lamps in the barangays. The city government’s power costs had run up to P42.32 million per year for a total of 8,200 lighting fixtures lighting streets, alleys, parks, overpasses and flyovers plus P24.08 million for the lighting of government offices and schools. The LED Conversion Project is one of the several economic cost-cutting measures implemented by the city government through the CEPMO, Lacsamana added.
