Haryana power agency to collect old lighting appliancesJuly 23rd, 2008 - 11:06 pm ICT by IANS
Chandigarh, July 23 (IANS) The southern Haryana power distribution agency has decided to collect unbroken, used compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), incandescent bulbs and tube lights for proper disposal so that they do not pose a threat to the environment. The agency has launched an incentive scheme under which one 15-watt CFL would be given free of cost against the submission of 10 CFLs or five tube lights or five incandescent bulbs of power rating above 25 watts or 20 incandescent bulbs, a spokesman said Wednesday.
The consumers would have to bring the unbroken old lighting equipment properly packed in paper for the exchange to any sub-divisional office or customer care centre of the agency.
The centre would issue a receipt when the old lighting equipment is deposited and lucky draws would be held in each operation circle on energy conservation day. The deposited appliances would be stored in steel drums at agency’s stores for proper disposal.
The agency is promoting the use of energy efficient lighting appliances in order to minimise the load on its distribution system during the peak hours in the evening and morning, the spokesman said.
