LED Lamps for Puducherry Village in India Soon

Under a scheme sponsored by India’s Bureau of Energy Efficiency, Union Ministry of Power, the Renewable Energy Agency of Puducherry (REAP) will install LED lamps in a village in the Union Territory at a cost of Rs. 15 lakh, according to The Hindu, the online edition of India's National Newspaper.

The scheme will seek to replace all existing incandescent bulbs in the village, including streetlights and household bulbs with LED bulbs. According to officials of REAP, the objective of the scheme is to showcase a new technology for lighting using LED, so that the difference between incandescent lamps and LED lamps may be demonstrated.

While a conventional incandescent lamp consumes 60 watts of power to produce 800 lumens - lumen is the unit for measuring amount of light - a fluorescent lamp consumes 23 to 27 watts to produce the same amount of light, and a compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) uses 13 to 15 watts. But, an LED lamp consumes only 6 to 8 watts of power, the officials said. The LED lamp offers many advantages, such as a drastic reduction in overall power consumption and electricity costs. One such lamp also lasts for up to 50, 000 burning hours, they said.

If the scheme is continued by the Union government, LED lamps could be installed in other parts of the Union Territory as well, the officials said.
