Lord’s Mark Industries, a diverse business group, announced Tuesday its entry in the solar-based lighting market and stated that it will invest Rs. 900 crore in a Bihar street light project.


Bihar will be the first state to install the largest solar-based lighting project in the world, according to BREDA (Bihar Renewable Energy Development Agency), in a press release.

It stated that the Agency was tasked with the development of schemes using non-conventional energy sources in state and is the nodal agency responsible for remote village electrification.

As part of the three-year project, which entails a total investment of Rs 900 crore, Lord’s Mark has expressed the ability to set up 1-lakh street lights at an investment of Rs 300 crore in the first year, the company said.

Lord’s Mark Industries was established in 1998 and manufactures a variety of healthcare products and renewable energy.

Bihar will be the first Indian state to get the largest solar streetlight system. It is based on an in-house developed RMS (Remote Monitoring System), which was created by the company and powered with AI through a SIM card.
