Hosabelaku

  • In an attempt to overcome severe power shortage faced by the state and to save power, Chief minister  launched an ambitious programme of the Energy department called ‘Hosa Belaku – Domestic Efficient Lighting Programme’.

  • The programme provides LED bulbs at nominal prices to all households in the state.
  • While incandescent bulbs are of 60 watt each, the LED bulbs introduced in the programme are 9 mega watts each and are non-breakable bulbs which come with a three year warranty.
  • They emit more light compared to incandescent bulbs.
  • Each consumer can save Rs 500 to Rs 600 per year with the usage of LED lights while the government can save 300 to 400 mega watt of electricity.
  • By introducing LED lamps in street lighting, we can save upto 1000 mega watts
  • The state has a demand of 10,000 mega watt but we generate only 7000 mega watt. There is a deficit of 3000 mega watt.
  • By May-June 2016 we are likely to generate an additional 2300 mega watt. With this project and other energy efficient projects we are likely to attain self sufficiency in the power sector in the coming years
