In today's energy deficient scenario the prerequisite to conserve energy is of prime importance. A unit of energy conserved is more valuable than the unit of energy generated. The project discoursed is an energy efficient street lighting system which has been fabricated and tested. The PIR sensor used in the project detects any human or no human intervention and generates a signal which elicits the microcontroller and further actions are executed. The LDR used detects the presence of sunlight and activates the whole projects only during night time making it automatic. The LED lamps were used for illumination which are most energy efficient compared to other luminaries.
