New Delhi: Tata Power, India’s largest integrated power company, has always been committed to the cause of energy conservation, and has been contributing extensively towards a brighter and greener tomorrow by undertaking several initiatives. In line with this philosophy, and further to its commitment to light up lives, Tata Power facilitated the implementation of national-level programme (DELP/UJALA), which is being implemented by M/s. EESL, a Union Government undertaking, with the aim to increase the penetration of LED lighting technology in the residential sector. The DELP/UJALA programme witnessed the distribution of more than 1.1 lakh LED bulbs for Tata Power consumers in Mumbai during FY17.
Facilitation of UJALA is one of the measures implemented by Tata Power under its demand side management (DSM) initiative. DSM is an intervention by a utility on the “customer side of the meter” to change the way customers use electricity. To encourage its consumers to switch to energy-efficient practices, Tata Power has launched exchange and new purchase programmes for various home appliances. Online registration, doorstep delivery and extended warranty for the products are some of the hallmarks of these programmes. Ceiling fans, split ACs, refrigerators, and LED tube lights are the appliances covered under these programmes.
Speaking on the initiative, Ashok Sethi, ED, operations, Tata Power, said, “At Tata Power, we constantly strive to add value to the lives of our customers. The importance of energy management and conservation is increasing with each passing day and it is here that LED lighting solutions can play a very important role. We are happy with the response we have received from our consumers with reference to the implementation of the DELP/UJALA programme. We are confident that when we lead by example, our customers will follow us in our effort to conserve energy”.
LED technology is, by far, the most energy-efficient and most eco-friendly option for lighting. LED lights have a long life-span, and save electricity to a great extent, thereby ensuring a smaller bill. LED lights are also free of toxic chemicals.
