The Society for the Development of the Province of Burgos (SODEBUR) works to promote social and economic development in rural areas of this Spanish province using different actions. There are 25 projects to be implemented from 2015 to 2020. They are divided in 5 axes: image and tourism, economic environment, connectivity, human capital and quality of life. One of the programmes promotes the development of a sustainable territory and the reduction of energy consumption. Within this programme, SODEBUR is developing an ambitious project called the Integral Renovation of Provincial Street lighting Project (PRIAP).
PRIAP, involved in the Development of the Province of Burgos, is going to change the street lighting into LED system in 256 municipalities in the province. The project will have a duration of 36 months, ending in December 2018. It will be financed up to € 9.325.694,94 funded by the provincial corporation, and € 8.557.500,00 by municipalities, making a total of € 17.883.194,94.
The main objective is to reduce energy consumption to approximately 53 M kwh during the 10 years expected for the life of the LED technology, and 21 M kg CO2.
