India Shows The Way To The World In Fight Against Climate Change,
Union Minister of State (IC) for Power, Coal, New & Renewable Energy and Mines, Piyush Goyal presided over the launch of World’s largest efficient lighting programme, UJALA – UK (UK Joins Affordable LEDs for All) by Energy Efficiency Services Ltd. (EESL) in London, United Kingdom today.
Minister Piyush Goyal Also Re-iterated PM Modi’s Vision Of Converting Most Vehicles In India To Electric Vehicles By 2030.
Known for his eloquence, Union Minister Piyush Goyal once again made the audience spellbound at the ‘World Conference on Environment 2017’ with his impressive speech on Climate Change, its impact and India’s preparedness to combat it.
With sales of LED bulbs exceeding 6 lakh a day, India can proudly claim achieving a substantial benchmark of distributing over 20 crore LED bulbs under its flagship UJALA scheme and more than 10 crore by the industry outside the UJALA scheme. Alongside, close to 16.5 Lakh Street bulbs have been replaced with LED Lights throughout the country under Street Lighting National Programme (SLNP).
Today India is a world leader in LED consumption and we're selling 600,000 LED bulbs a day, union minister of state for power, coal, RE and mines Piyush Goyal said on Wednesday at the Raisina Dialogue 2017 in New Delhi.
In a span of just two years and which is also a record of sorts, India is presently selling six lakh LED bulbs every day and has crossed yet another benchmark of distributing over 20 crore LED bulbs under its flagship UJALA scheme. This assumes significance given the savings of Rs 10,000 crore that will accrue annually in electricity bills of the consumers.
The scheme is presently operational in 18 states and 4 Union Territories and will be rolled out soon in West Bengal and North Eastern states in the coming days. In the remaining states and Union Territories, the decision to roll out the scheme is pending with the respective state governments.
