HEP ESCO, subsidiary of Croatian state power utility Hrvatska Elektroprivreda (HEP), has started a public lighting reconstruction project in the city of Osijek, during which 11,086 LED lights will be installed.

The new ESCO/EPC model will enable an annual decrease in electricity consumption for public lighting by 7.5 million kWh and the investment of HRK 30.8 million (around EUR 4.08 million) will pay off within eight years, HEP ESCO said.
