Govt distributes over 7 crore LED bulbs under DELP scheme
The government has distributed over seven crore LED bulbs under the Domestic Efficient Lighting Programme.

"Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) has distributed over seven crore LED bulbs... under the Domestic Efficient Lighting Programme (DELP). The milestone was achieved on the Budget Day," the Power Ministry said in a statement.

The scheme, implemented by EESL, under the Power Ministry, has been adopted by over 2.3 crore people across 11 states in the country.

"With the distribution of seven crore LED bulbs, the government has helped India avoid peak demand of over 2,085 mw and an estimated energy savings of more than 2.4 crore kwh per day. India has committed to a significant reduction in carbon emission and this scheme plays a pivotal role in achieving it," it said.

The government stands committed to achieving the target of changing 77 crore incandescent bulbs in the residential sector to energy efficient LEDs by March 2019. The target will lead to an expected reduction in installed load of 20,000 mw with an annual estimated savings of over 100 million kwh.

Currently, the DELP scheme is fully operational in Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Kerala, Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Delhi, Andhra Pradesh, Puducherry, Jharkhand and Uttarakhand.

More states and UTs, including Dadra and Nagar Haveli, Gujarat, Odisha, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana and Bihar, will be launching the national programme shortly.
