The LED city
In 2007, the town spent 280,000 euro to convert all its 700 street lamps to LED technology - a first in Europe - and thereby reduced its energy and maintenance costs by 70%. Because of this, the town was awarded the Kyoto 2007 prize. Newspapers referred to Torraca as "LED city".
The town is situated in the south of Cilento, a few kilometers from Sapri and Maratea and close to the borders of Campania with Basilicata. The surrounding municipalities are Casaletto Spartano, Sapri, Tortorella and Vibonati.
