The electricity department launched the domestic efficient lighting programme (DELP) in Goa on April 27. The project is part of the UJALA (Unnat Jyoti by Affordable LEDs for All) scheme launched by the central government in January 2015. In Goa, around 4.89 lakh households will be covered and around 15 lakh LED bulbs will be distributed. With the launch of the project the government will save around `15 crore annually on power supply to domestic low-tension consumers. As part of the initiative, the government will also begin the work of replacing and fitting the streetlights with LED fixtures. An agreement was executed between the Goa Electricity Department and the Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL), the project executing agency. To collect the bulbs, the consumer has to produce the latest electricity bill and a photo identity card at the kiosks that will be set up by EESL. The distribution of bulbs will commence in the month of June and the department expects to complete the process by the end of August.
