$7 M for LED switchover

Government has allocated $7 million “in the first instance” to its bulb replacement programme which is expected to last over a two-year period, Public Utilities Minister Robert Le Hunte said yesterday.

Le Hunte stressed the initiative must be taken in a broader context, in that the bulb replacement programme was one element in a series of ongoing activities in which the Government is taking the lead in promoting energy efficiency and energy conservation.
