Promotion of Energy Efficiency-Distribution of LED Bulbs

Assam Hydrocarbon and Energy Company Ltd (AHECL) is a public sector undertaking under Deptt. of Mines and Minerals, Govt. of Assam. The Company was established in the year 2006. Recently the Board of Directors of AHCEL decided to promote energy efficiency and save consumption of energy by way of distribution of LED bulbs at resonable cost.

Under a scheme namely Domestic Efficient Lighting Programme (DELP), a Central Govt. PSU, named Energy Efficiency Services Ltd. (EESL) procure LED bulbs from various manufacturers in bulk (in millions) at a highly competitive price. In order to promote energy efficiency in the state, AHECL has tied up with EESL and introduced the distribution of LED bulbs at a special rate of Rs.108/- (Rupees one hundred eight) only per bulb of 7 watts. The LED of 7 watts is equivalent to an incandescent bulb of 60 watts. Other advantages of LED bulbs are:

  • LED bulbs consume 90% lesser energy than incandescent bulbs and 50% lesser than CFL. Therfore usage of LEDs will reduce bill of electricity consumption by 50% to 90% on lighting.
  • Bulbs do not break easily.
  • The bulbs usually last very long and even upto 15 years if used indoor and as per instructions.
  • The  market price of a 7 watt LED bulb is around Rs. 400/- (Rupes Four Hundred) only whereas AHECL is distributing it at a special price of Rs. 108/- (Rupees One Hundred) only.
  • LED bulbs emit light only, and no heat is generated.
  • LED bulbs do not contain mecury which is poisonous for human health and environment.

The company has planned to distribute the bulbs to the consumers at the grassroot level through Amar Dukans, Fair Price shops, GPSS, etc of Department of Food & Civil Supplies, Govt. of Assam.
