A great initiative!

Cool stuff! Xlendi has been given some TLC in the sustainability department, after a new solar-powered light system was installed along the bay. The new system includes 13 lamp posts along the bay and coastline.

“Thanks to intelligent lights and motion sensors, the new lights will give off intensity as needed and in necessary amounts,” Gozo Minister Clint Camilleri shared on Facebook earlier this morning. “This is so that while we are using reusable energy, we limit light pollution as much as possible.”

The Minister also noted in a statement that it is the environment around us that suffers the most from the pollution we bring about, including light pollution. This initiative means that Xlendi Bay will have a cleaner energy flowing through this area on a daily basis.
