With the aim of saving precious electricity and consequently, saving public funds as well, the City of Rosarito in Baja California Norte would be implementing a public lighting reconversion in the entire city. By public lighting reconversion, it means that the street lamps all over the city would be replaced with lamps that are more energy efficient.
At the moment, there are more than 5,000 street lamps located all over the City of Rosarito. However, many of these public lamps require great amounts of energy to function making them both inefficient and expensive. Thus, the Rosarito Municipal Public Works Department together with Savings Electricity Trust would implement this Public Street lamp Reconversion all throughout th months of February until March of 2008.
Savings Electricity Trust or Fideicomiso de Ahorro de Energía Eléctrica is an electrical company that has wide experience with this kind of project. It was reported that other cities in the peninsula of Baja California that have already performed city-wide public light reconversions have also worked with Savings Electricity Trust.
This project of the Rosarito Municipal Public Works Department would be very beneficial to the environment since electricity would be efficiently used as well as to the entire city because their money would not be spent on high-energy consuming public street lamps.
