Cártama town hall has announced it will invest 1.6 million euros in the third phase of the renovation of town’s public street lighting, a project that was recently awarded the Altiberia Energía SL company.

With an execution period of six months, the initiative will include the installation of more than 3,000 LED lights with the aim of improving energy efficiency and favouring the transition to a low-carbon economy. The mayor of the town, Jorge Gallardo, said that the state-of-the-art LED technology offers “greater durability, more performance and high efficiency”.

“It is a fundamental element for our municipality to have sustainable growth,” Gallardo said.

More than 200 streetlights have already been replaced with LED lighting systems in the neighbourhood of El Sexmo, while 650 lights have been replaced in the centre of Cártama Pueblo. The work is part of the town hall’s project for the comprehensive remodelling of the town’s historic centre.

“Through this third phase, the public lighting systems of the rest of the municipality will be renewed. In total, with these three phases, the council is going to invest more than 2.5 million euros in improving the lighting,” the mayor explained.
