Asiana helps light up Angkor Wat with solar-powered lampsAsiana Airlines is installing solar-powered streetlights around the famous tourist draw and temple complex of Angkor Wat in Siem Reap, Cambodia, Korea’s second-biggest airline said yesterday. Angkor Wat is a Unesco World Cultural Heritage site.
Asiana and the Korea International Cooperation Agency have been setting up the streetlights since 2010 and they will complete the installation of 50 lights by the end of this year.
“We hope the installation will help protect the historic sites as well as tourists,” said Cho Gyu-yeong, an executive at Asiana. “We’ll continue to make efforts to protect World Cultural Heritage sites.” A solar-powered streetlight represents a saving of 230 kilograms (507 pounds) of carbon dioxide emission a year compared to traditional electric bulbs.
