Minister for Gozo, Clint Camilleri, visited Xlendi, where on the initiative of the Ministry a new lighting system was installed using solar energy. The Minister said that this pilot project, which includes 13 poles with solar lights, drastically reduced the light pollution in the area.
He explained that light pollution has been taken into account and so these new lights are being switched on when needed using the necessary amount. The use of intelligent lights with motion sensors means that there is light only when needed.
Minister Camilleri stated that it is the environment around us that suffers from the pollution we cause, including through light, and therefore this initiative is a clear demonstration that the Ministry has at its heart the protection of the environment and constantly works for a better Gozo.
Minister for Gozo Clint Camilleri concluded by saying that this solar energy system means cleaner energy for Xlendi Bay.
