Indian Power Company BSES Discoms Sells 1.6 Million LED Bulbs

Reliance Energy backed Indian power company BSES discoms sold some 1.6 million LED bulbs in Indian metropolitan New Delhi over the last three months as part of its energy conservation promotion, reported The Economic Times.

The power companies BSES Rajdhani Power (BRPL) and BSES Yamuna Power (BYPL) have both launched a scheme to sell the LED bulbs at subsidized rates to customers in June.

Since the kickoff of the LED bulb subsidies in June, the companies have sold about 1.6 million LED bulbs within the BSES region, stated BSES. These are expected to lead to energy savings of 17 million units per year, the power company added.

Under the discoms LED bulb scheme customers have the option of buying LED bulbs through easy monthly installments, and can buy four 7W LED bulbs at a subsidized price of INR 93 (US $1.40). Consumers can also choose the option of paying an upfront of INR 10 per bulb, and the balance in nine installments, which is directly charged on their electricity bill. The LED bulbs come with a three year warranty.
