Abstract: Residential sector is one of the prime area where energy saving can be implemented under win-win situation by installing solar street lighting system. Manufacturers, Suppliers, promoters and even Govt. bodies may take a lead part as being undertaken for the Govt. organizations / installations through DGS&D rate contract with subsidized rate for residential sector too. An empirical study has been conducted from ten different housing societies of Ahmadabad urban area those covered under co-operative housing societies and researchers found that there are lots of scope to save energy by just switching over to solar street lighting system with LED lamps from the conventional street lighting that will not only boost towards renewable energy use but saves lots of energy resources whether it is coal or oil as input fuel to thermal power plant.
