Saving 6  Megawatt from a single Street lamp or Rs 37,000/- from a single Lamp

A street lamps consumers around 200 to 400W per Hour  while an energy efficient LED of 36 W.60W orovude for brightness from 4500Lm to 6000Lm this is  equivalent or better lighting .   simple mathematics would  summarise this to save  approx  168 W (incase of 200)  an hour  and about 1680 W a day  in a year this would be  saving  about  613000W or 6 Meagwatts .

In terms of economical benefits one unit (!KW)cost approx Rs. 6/- In saving 613 KW a saving of Rs 37,000/- approx.

Saving  at Home :  600KW or Rs 3600/- 

In our home we could reduce use of Tube lights (55W  40W of the tube and 15W of the ballast/Choke)) and use 9W LED Tube
The light is better (brightness) or an 18W CFL 
You save 34W of power for every hour of use from a single tube.
You save 272W every day and annually you save 99820W or 100KW of energy
For 6 Tubes you could save approx 600KW and economically you will save Rs 3600/-
