Electronics Bazaar - - Led News -

Lo­hit be­came the first district in Arunachal Pradesh to launch en­ergy ef­fi­cient LED bulbs and LED tube­lights, pro­cured at sub­sidised rates un­der the UJALA pro­gramme of the cen­tral gov­ern­ment.

With this, 9W LED bulbs and 20W LED tube­lights will now cost a min­i­mum of ` 70 and

` 230, re­spec­tively, a marked re­duc­tion from the cur­rent mar­ket prices. The En­ergy Ef­fi­ciency Ser­vices Lim­ited (ESSL), a pub­lic en­ergy ser­vices com­pany un­der the Cen­tre’s Min­istry of Power, has tied up with the APEDA (Arunachal Pradesh En­ergy De­vel­op­ment Au­thor­ity) to launch the scheme across the state. In­ter­est­ingly, al­though the scheme is yet to be for­mally launched,

Lo­hit has got a head start by be­com­ing the first district to im­ple­ment it.
