Distribution of LED Bulbs in Central India
This project aims to reduce fossil-fuel-based electricity consumption in rural households in India by replacing old and low-efficient incandescent lamps (ICLs) with more energy-efficient LED lamps. The goal is to decrease energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, as ICLs are almost 6 times less energy efficient than LED lamps. The project has already distributed high-quality LED lamps in the rural parts of the project area.
A baseline survey was conducted to understand the preferences and wattages of lighting equipment used in rural and peri-urban households. During the survey, the beneficiaries were interviewed and reasons were noted as to why they have not shifted to LED Bulbs. The biggest reason for not shifting as the initial purchase cost of these LEDs. With this project, we are providing these beneficiares with LED Bulbs at free of cost to make their shift towards clean energy easier and faster.
