Mahua Acharya, MD and CEO, CESL said, “Providing affordable and high-quality LEDs to rural households in India is a matter of great importance. It empowers people with energy efficient lighting and enables them to save a significant amount on their electricity bills as well. The bulbs, available at 10 rupees, which is a fraction of its market cost, has been made possible by Carbon Credits. We are making efforts to take Gram Ujala to every corner of the country.”

Any consumer from a rural household with a valid electricity connection from DISCOM can avail LED bulbs under the initiative. Operations under the programme had begun before the pandemic induced restrictions were imposed in the country in April

CESL uses carbon credits to offset the cost of these LED bulbs. One consumer can exchange a maximum of 5 bulbs under this initiative. These bulbs consume 88 per cent less electricity as compared to their incandescent counterparts.

These lights come with a three-year free replacement warranty and better shelf life. Switching to these affordable LED lights can help in saving up to 13 units per bulb per month, as per claims.
