Compact florescent lamps to replace bulbs in two Haryana districtsAugust 8th, 2008 - 4:33 pm ICT by IANS
Chandigarh, Aug 8 (IANS) Two districts in Haryana will become the first ones in the world where conventional light bulbs will be completely replaced by compact florescent lamps (CFL). Uttar Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (UHBVN) will shortly launch this unique scheme under which 530,000 CFLs will be distributed by Osram India to all electricity consumers in the districts of Yamunanagar and Sonepat.
UHBVN managing director Vijendra Kumar said that these two districts were the first ones in the world to be chosen for this programme.
“This will save energy and would help in reducing carbon dioxide emissions and hence global warming. More than eighty percent electricity will be conserved by using CFLs,” Kumar said here.
Under the scheme, conventional bulbs of 100 watt and 60 watt would be replaced by CFL of 20 watts and 15 watts respectively in each household. CFL lights have an average life span of about 10 years.
