Government to provide one million LED bulbs to low income consumers

The government has received the cabinet approval to launch a program to provide LED light bulbs to low income consumers, who cannot afford to purchase the energy efficient light bulbs.

The government has been paying more attention to the management of energy and to reduce the demand for electricity.

Accordingly, as a measure to promote the use of energy efficient light bulbs and reduce demand for power, it has been proposed to provide LED bulbs to low income consumers under the national Demand Side Energy Management Program.

According to a proposal put forward by the Minister of Power and Renewable Energy Ranjith Siyambalapitiya, one million LED bulbs will be distributed to 3.9 million low income consumers under an interest free loan scheme.
