It has always been the mandate of APDCL to make its consumers’ aware about saving of energy as energy saved is energy produced.
In order to encourage the people to use LED (Light Emitting Diode) bulbs in place of incandescent bulbs, tube lights and CFL bulbs, Domestic Efficient Lighting Programme (DELP) was launched by Government of India. The DELP scheme provides LED bulbs at a subsidized rate for replacing traditional or CFL lamps to households.
Advantages: LED bulbs are more efficient, long lasting and economical in their life cycle duration. LED bulbs consume lesser electricity and has more life span compared to next best CFL bulbs. Health point of view also, LED bulbs emit lesser ultraviolet and infra-red radiation.
APDCL has also launched distribution of energy efficient LED bulbs to its customers at subsidized cost as part of this project. Use of LED bulbs will significantly reduce the energy consumption which will help in saving of energy for a brighter tomorrow.
Implementation agency: The Electricity Distribution Company i.e. APDCL and Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) a public sector body of Government of India are implementing the programme.
Eligibility of acquiring LED bulbs: Every grid-connected consumer having a metered connection from their respective Electricity Distribution Company can get the LED bulbs at about 40% of the market price under the DELP Scheme.
