Aparan, Aragatsotn – On November 7, the USAID-funded Clean Energy and Water Program (CEWP) conducted a community workshop in Aparan, following the completion of a street-lighting improvement project in the town. The purpose of the community workshop was to disseminate the positive results of the project and present the energy and cost benefits of energy efficient lighting technologies to participants, including community leaders, representatives of private firms and public organizations from both Aparan and neighboring communities. CEWP engineers discussed the financial benefits that energy saving technologies generate for users and introduced modern approaches to energy efficient street-lighting systems.

In his remarks, the mayor of Aparan extended his appreciation to USAID for supporting the project and handed a certificate of acknowledgement to USAID on behalf of the community.
