December 15, 2014: N Chandrababu Naidu, Chief Minister of Indian state Andhra Pradesh (AP), on the occasion of National Energy Conservation (NEC) Day, called upon the people to conserve energy, which is very precious. By saving energy, he said, it will benefit the present as well as the future generations. He stressed the need to bring in the LED revolution across the country to save energy.
He asked IYR Krishna Rao, State Chief Secretary, to replace the energy-hungry and inefficient incandescent bulbs with energy-efficient LED lights, not only in the street light segment but also in the housing sector in a phased manner by 2016.
Andhra Pradesh government?s energy efficiency initiatives have been appreciated by the central government. The state government has initiated a big program that aims at saving about 500 MW. In the Guntur district alone, 8.2 lakh LED bulbs have been distributed in the first phase. This energy-efficient program will be extended across the state.
The state will provide LED bulbs, which cost Rs 400 each, at Rs10 under the programme Demand Side Management-based Efficient Lighting.
Currently, the demand for LED lights in India is coming from government projects like street lights that many of the Indian states have undertaken. About 27.5 million streetlights across the country are being replaced with LED lights
