An update on ongoing electrification process

In view of the Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi’s address to nation, on Independence Day, Government of India has decided to electrify remaining 18,452 un-electrified villages within 1000 days i.e. by 01st May, 2018.  The project has been taken on mission mode and strategy for electrification consists of squeezing the implementation schedule to 12 months and also dividing village electrification process in 12 Stage milestones with defined timelines for monitoring.

During 2015-16, 5930 villages have been electrified till date. Out of remaining 12,522 villages, 8678 villages are to be electrified through grid, 3355 villages are to be electrified through off- grid where grid solutions are out of reach due to geographical barriers and 489 villages are to be electrified by State Govt own. 
Total 1654 villages were electrified during April 2015 to 14th Aug 2015 and after taking initiative by Government of India for taking it on mission mode,  4276 additional villages have been electrified from 15th August 2015 to 28th February.   In order to expedite the progress further, a close monitoring is being done through Gram Vidyut Abhiyanta (GVA) and various actions are also being taken on regular basis  like reviewing the progress on monthly basis during the RPM meeting, sharing of list of villages which are at the stage of under energisation with the state Discom, identifying the villages where milestone progress are delayed.

EESL Reaches Milestone of Distribution of 7 Crore LED Bulbs on Budget Day

Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) has distributed over seven crore LED bulbs to the citizens of the country under the Domestic Efficient Lighting Programme (DELP). The milestone was achieved on the Budget Day. The scheme, implemented by Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL), under the Ministry of Power, has been adopted by over 2.3 crore people across 11 states in the country.  

EESL has taken only 19 days to distribute the last crore since the six crore milestone was achieved in early February.

With the distribution of seven crore LED bulbs, the Government has helped India avoid peak demand of over 2,085 MW and an estimated energy savings of more than 2.4 crore kWh per day. India has committed to a significant reduction in carbon emissions and this scheme plays a pivotal role in achieving it.

The Government stands committed to achieving the target of changing 77 crore incandescent bulbs in the residential sector to energy efficient LED by March 2019. The target will lead to an expected reduction in installed load of 20,000 MW with an annual estimated savings of over 100 million kWh.

Currently, the Domestic Efficient Lighting Programme (DELP) scheme is fully operational in Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Kerala, Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Delhi, Andhra Pradesh, Puducherry, Jharkhand and Uttrakhand. More states and UTs including Dadra and Nagar Haveli, Gujarat, Odisha, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana and Bihar will be launching the national programme shortly.

The Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi inaugurated the DELP scheme in January 2015, to be executed across 100 cities. Through this scheme, residential consumers are provided with high quality LED bulbs given at a concessional rate of Rs.100-105 as against the market price of Rs 350 to 450. The DELP scheme has also significantly impacted the market price of LED bulbs, through a combination of aggregation and transparent procurement.  EESL has  been able to procure LED bulbs for Rs 73 as of June 2015 , down from Rs 310 in February, 2014, a reduction of over 75%. 

The target of the DELP is to replace all the 77 crore incandescent bulbs sold in India by LEDs. This will result in reduction of 20,000 MW load, energy savings of 100 billion KWh and Green House Gas (GHG) emissions savings of 80 million tons every year. The annual saving in electricity bills of consumers will be Rs. 40,000 crore, considering average tariff of Rs. 4 per kWh.

DELP Dashboard:
National DELP Dashboard is an integrated, real-time, and web-based dashboard which dynamically refreshes at an interval of 15-sec to display in real-time, number of LEDs distributed at national level. This is achieved by aggregating real-time feeds from multiple states where DELP is ongoing. The progress of scheme can be tracked on http://www.delp.in/

Through www.iledtheway.in microsite, consumers can take a pledge of switching to LED bulbs, which are safer, brighter and consume less energy. The Microsite visitors can join the movement by simply clicking “Take a Pledge” tab which is prominently displayed on the homepage.
