BSES’ latest pro-environment endeavour transgresses borders. BSES Rajdhani Power Limited (BRPL) has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with (LSG), America’s largest manufacturer of Light Emitting Diodes (LED)’s.

The far reaching MoU, a first of its kind by any discom in the country will see the two collaborate and explore avenues to demonstrate and promote energy efficiency using the next gen LED lighting. “The scope of the association will also involve conducting field trials of various LED based lighting options, including street lights at select locations and making LED products available at competitive prices for BRPL customers of South and West Delhi”, said Mr Gopal Saxena, CEO BRPL, while commenting on the MoU with LSG.

“This association with enable BRPL and LSG to explore opportunities to demonstrate the benefits of LED lighting”, added Mr Saxena.

“India has a tremendous growth potential that is exerting great demands on its infrastructure. Partnering with BRPL to demonstrate the benefits of LED technology will ensure rapid adoption of this technology that will enable efficient usage of power infrastructure for growth while saving money for the consumers”, said Mr Jim Haworth, CEO of Lighting Science Group.

The next generation LED bulbs fit perfectly into existing screw-in light sockets and create clean, bright light level, equivalent to that of a conventional incandescent bulb. Even when compared to a CFL, they use significantly less electricity and contain no mercury. They also have a significantly longer life span than both CFL’s and Incandescent Bulbs – the average life span of a LED Bulb being around 50,000 hours verses 8,000 hours for a CFL and 1,000 hours for an incandescent bulb.

LED is an ideal long-term sustainable product, which is perfectly suited for Delhi’s extreme hot and humid climate. Looking at the benefits of using this ‘cold light’, increasingly commercial and industrial establishments are switching to LED’s. It is also a recommended lighting product for lighting using solar energy. LED lights are ideal if the per day usage is more than 8 hrs. This is true for commercial and industrial applications.

Use of LED bulbs not only goes a long way in conserving precious electricity, but also leads to huge savings in a household’s electricity bill.

“Using a 60 Watt Incandescent Bulb for 8 hours a day, will consume 14 Units and on the other hand, a 7 Watt LED will consume just about 1.7 Units of electricity per month. Imagine the savings potential if one adopt LED’s”, remarked Mr Saxena.

According to studies, the country plans to build 80 new coal-fired power plants to keep up with rising electricity demand over the next 5 years, and the potential savings from simply changing light bulbs to the new LED technology can significantly reduce the country’s new power plant demand by as much as 40%.

BRPL and BYPL, Delhi’s premier power distribution companies are committed to ensuring quality and reliable electricity supply to all their consumers.
