The 5th Board Meeting of the Telangana New and Renewable Energy Development Corporation Limited (TNREDCL) held on Tuesday decided to take up distribution of LED bulbs to all the households in Medak and Nizamabad districts on a pilot project basis.

            The meeting held under the chairmanship of Arvind Kumar, Secretary, Energy department, proposed to distribute LED bulbs duly replacing incandescent bulbs. Under the project, each household will be provided with two LED bulbs of 9 watts each.  80 per cent power could be saved if conventional lights are replaced with LED lamps. As energy saving will be quite substantial, the board has decided to distribute two 9 watt LED bulb to each household on exchange of two 60 watt incandescent bulbs to save power consumed.

            It is estimated that about 90 per cent of energy consumed will be saved by using LED bulbs. Apart from saving conventional power, it benefits the society in achieving the energy security and protection of environment and to reduce the household energy consumption.  It helps the department in reducing the demand and supply gap and load shedding during peak hours.  The energy thus saved can meet the demand of commercial and industrial sectors.

            LED Bulbs will be distributed as a part of the Demand Side Efficient Lighting Programme (DELP) being implemented to save electricity consumption.  Board Members of TNREDCL -Joint Secretary Energy G S Panda Das, VC & MD,  TNREDCL C. Srinivasa Rao,  CMD, TSSPDCL  G. Raghuma Reddy, and other Board members attended the meeting.
