VivaCell-MTS provides outdoor lighting system in Vardahovit community

Most of the residents of Vardahovit community in Vayots Dzor region are refugees and families that have relocated from different adjacent villages since 1989. Until this year, there had been no outdoor lighting infrastructure in the community. Now the community has 1.6 km-long system of 45 LED lights.

The construction of the new external illumination infrastructures was realized within the frames of Alternative Energy project, implemented by Foundation for the Preservation of Wildlife and Cultural Assets (FPWC) and VivaCell-MTS.

VivaCell-MTS General Manager Ralph Yirikian and FPWC founder Ruben Khachatryan, Head of Vardahovit community Samvel Gevorgyan and community residents attended the launching ceremony of the newly built energy-efficient system.  

“One of the priorities of VivaCell-MTS is supporting the development of rural communities as a precondition of resolving social and environmental problems in the country. The construction of LED outdoor lighting systems provides long-term impact on the improvement of residents’ quality of life and sustainable development of a number of Armenian communities, including Vardahovit. The joy and enthusiasm of the residents encourage us to do even more and prove the efficiency of the social responsibility strategy underlying the projects,” said VivaCell-MTS General Manager Ralph Yirikian.

The operation of enironmentally friendly and energy-efficient LED lights reduces energy consumption by up to 80%.

Outdoor lighting will be provided from 21:00 to 00:00 in summer, and from 18:00 to 23:00 in winter. On holidays, street lighting will be available all night long.
