More than 8 crore LED bulbs distributed under Ujala Scheme

  Indian households are rapidly adopting LED bulbs in a bid to make their homes energy efficient. Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) distributed over 8 crore LED bulbs in a year across 125 cities in the country under the Government of India’s UJALA (Unnat Jyoti by Affordable LEDs for all) scheme.
Efficient domestic lighting is one of the largest contributors to energy savings globally. Distribution of 8 crore LED bulbs – achieved over a period of 12 months – has led to daily savings of over 2.84 crore kWh – savings capable of lighting over 20 lakh homes for 365 days. Alongside the savings in units, the country has also benefitted from daily CO2 emission reduction of 23,000 tonnes. Currently, the UJALA scheme is fully operational in Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Kerala, Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Delhi, Haryana, Bihar, Andhra Pradesh, Puducherry, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh and Uttrakhand. More states and UTs will be launching the national programme shortly. The UJALA scheme – being implemented by Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) – has been widely accepted across rural and urban areas of the country. The primary reason for this mass adoption is the capability of LED bulbs to give consistent luminosity even in low voltage, where incandescent and CFL bulbs usually fail. Also, the LED bulbs distributed under the UJALA scheme is one third the market price and these superior quality bulbs also come with a three-year free replacement warranty.
