Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated a special dynamic system on Tuesday of over 800 LED lights that have been installed on the facade of Parliament House.

Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla presided over the event.  Among other dignitaries were Union Ministers, Deputy Chairman of Rajya Sabha Harivansh; Members of Parliament and former Members of Parliament.

There are 875 energy-efficient LED light fixtures (water and dust resistant), which have been installed in the Complex, allowing a significant reduction of power consumption. The long-lasting, excellent intensity LED bulbs are capable of creating 16 million colour combinations and the LED lighting is programmable and electronically controlled through computers, a Lok Sabha Secretariat release said. The whole facade of Parliament House building has been covered for dynamic facade lighting and porches of Building Gates have also been highlighted.

The power consumption in the Parliament House, Parliament Library Building and Parliament House Annexe buildings will be about 26 KW, 15 KW and 12 KW respectively. The cost of permanent dynamic LED facade lighting is recoverable in 8.2 years, considering the expenditure involved in traditional temporary illumination.  In case of permanent installations, lighting effects are available for all 365 days as compared to 10-15 days in case of temporary illumination.    

The work of dynamic facade lighting of Parliament House, Parliament Library Building and Parliament House Annexe buildings was initiated on July 20 by the Central Public Works Department and completed in just 22 days.
