Indian Government has proposed an energy efficient LED bulb promoting program with BEE and EESL, in which every citizen can buy LED lamp only for Rs.10.
Modern India is very inspirational and incredible country. It offers a great platform for every new scientific discovery aiming to well-being of citizens. For example, use solar energy and bio-gas plant for villages is effective, eco-friendly and durable step to improve living grades of people in harmony with nature. Indian government is going to take one more revolutionary step towards bright future of their citizens with concept of selling LED lamp at really cheap price than usual bulbs.
LED light bulbs are highly energy efficient lighting source for urban areas. LED Lamp does not contain mercury so it is eco-friendly by nature. LED Lamp lasts for very long period of time and uses only one-tenth of the energy than normal incandescent bulb. First LED bulb made in India was sold for Rs.1200 in year of 2010. In just 4 years, government has found a solution to provide these energy efficient LED lamps at very low cost, which is really admirable step.
To reduce consumption of huge amount of electricity, The Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) and Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) have started LED lamp promoting program in which every citizen will get LED lamps for just Rs. 10 per LED lamp. Government has got inspiration to give brighter future to their citizens with less use of electricity, when a Noble prize awarded to physics scientist for inventing blue light emitting diode (LED).
The BEE and EESL have started joint venture with four central public sectors to produce business model bulb. Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu has launched the energy conversation Mission’s Demand Side Efficient Lighting Program (DELP) in state. This program will be promoted to replace incandescent bulbs with energy-efficient LED bulbs.
Highly efficient LED bulbs have been started to sell under the DELP in Guntur. After Guntur, DELP will cover Anantapur, West Godavari and Srikakulam districts to encourage people for use of LED bulbs. Moreover, the Union Power Ministry has also determined that every household that comes under the poverty line will be provided electrification with the LED technology under the Gandhi Grameen Vidyuthikaran Yojana (RGGVY).
