Lighting up Micronesia: street lights improve safety in Chuuk

On Weno, in the Federated States of Micronesia, streetlighting is improving safety and security across the island. The more efficient and cheaper streetlights will allow residents to walk home safely at night, enable local businesses to operate longer, and make driving at night safer. The World Bank is supporting the government of the Federated States of Micronesia to improve the efficiency and reliability of electricity supply across the country. Through the Energy Sector Development Project, the World Bank is also strengthening the planning and technical capacities at the state power utilities and the national Government of FSM.
