The initiative is part of the Government of India’s efforts to spread the message of energy efficiency in the country.UJALA scheme aims to promote efficient use of energy at the residential level; enhance the awareness of consumers about the efficacy of using energy efficient appliances and aggregating demand to reduce the high initial costs thus facilitating higher uptake of LED lights by residential users.
Within one year of its launch, approx 9 crore LED bulbs were sold in the country. The programme was launched in July and reached the one-crore LED milestone on 9 August 2015. The total replacement has helped energy saving of more than 1.4 crore units per day.
