One of the major initiatives taken by Greater Dahod Corporation under Smart City Project is replacing of existing sodium vapour lamps with LED lights. LED based lighting system has become a popular substitute for low voltage lighting. LEDs are favored over incandescent bulb or CFL as LEDs convert far more of their energy in to light. For instance, substantial amount of energy is wasted as heat in bulbs. Increased efficiency means a drop-in withdrawal from the grid or that batteries will last much longer maintaining the brightness.
While the smart city mission has a large focus on developing public infrastructure, it is also about creating smart citizens who can operate fluidly within this new environment. These citizens can only be made smart if they are educated hand-in-hand with technology. In keeping with that goal, CSCL strives to create a model to equip schools with technology-based digital learning zones for students and teachers to maximize learning outcomes for a smarter future which can be replicated in other schools in the city.
