MSEDCL Plans to Distribute 47 lakh LED Bulbs
The Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Ltd stated that it will distribute around 47 lakh LED bulbs in the Kolhapur and Sangli circles.
The initiative is to start in Kolhapur city from January 2016.
The Union government has undertaken a nationwide programme to replace electricity bulbs with LED bulbs as they consume less power compared to CFL bulbs. In its statement, the government said that energy saving is on its agenda as the saved power can be used for other purposes. The Union government is already spending a huge amount for laying new power lines and electricity transformers to provide power to villages. With more expansion of the power network, transmission losses are also mounting and cannot be controlled. The government has therefore proposed to undertake measures to bring down power consumption.
