Jaipur Municipal Corporation (JMC) operates and maintains over 100,000 public street lights within the city. However, the public lights system was facing problems owing to old, energy-intensive technology and a lack of capacity to operate such a large network. Under the umbrella of a Knowledge Partnership between the Government of Rajasthan and IFC, JMC engaged IFC as the transaction advisor to structure a PPP for financing, upgrading, operating and maintaining the public lights system in Jaipur. As a result, a consortium led by a large Indian energy services company and manufacturer of LED lightswon the bid for a 10-year energy performance contract. The agreement was signed in December 2014.
