The government is determined to building a sustainable, secure and affordable energy sector by promoting energy efficiency initiatives, said chief executive officer of AP State Energy Conservation Mission (APSECM) A Chandrasekhar Reddy.
The APSECM conducted a seminar on the ‘Impact of energy efficiency for enhancement of the economy of the state’ at SDM Mahila Kalasala in Vijayawada on Saturday, as part of national energy conservation week.
Speaking on this occasion, Chandrasekhar Reddy said the state had initiated the world’s largest rural LED street lighting programme under which 23.29 lakh LED lights have been installed in 11,749 gram panchayats. “The state government has decided to install another four lakh LED street lights at the request of gram panchayats.
The APSECM had successfully introduced IoT-enabled power monitoring device in an MSME industry of East Godavari district on a pilot basis, which saved energy bills to the tune of Rs 80,000,” said Reddy.
