KUALA LUMPUR: Synergy Esco has unveiled an initiative to help strata buildings in Selangor conserve energy and reduce carbon emissions.
The "Light Source in Darkness" programme facilitates the installation of Synergy Esco's energy-efficient LED lights at no upfront cost.
The initiative was unveiled at "The Green Initiative Programme" symposium recently.
The company's LED lights are patented and durable, with a lifespan of up to 10 years and no maintenance required.
They consume 5.0 watts while delivering 210 lumens, as opposed to traditional LED lights that use 18 watts.
This translates to energy savings of up to 80 per cent compared to other LED lights in the market, Synergy Esco claimed.
Chief operating officer Ally Tai said initially focused on commercial buildings, Synergy Esco now aims to extend the program to strata buildings, encompassing all 6,000 strata buildings in Selangor.
"Our mission is to implement energy-saving protocols capable of saving 100 million trees over a decade," he added.
Newly-appointed Selangor state executive councillor for housing and urban wellbeing Borhan Aman Shah emphasised the crucial role of collective efforts in achieving its vision for a sustainable future.
"The state government has set a goal to install 10 per cent of LED lights across Selangor by December 2023.
"This goal can contribute to energy savings equivalent to preserving 1.3 million trees every year and reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 51 tonnes annually " he added.
