Effort towards saving energy with LED bulbs

Hon’ble Minister for Economic Affairs, Norbu Wangchuk, launched the program to replace all incandescent light bulbs with LED bulbs in the country.

There are an estimated 700000 incandescent bulbs in the country. While the LED bulbs last 20 years, the incandescent bulbs have to be replaced every year and consume 90% more energy. Lyonpo appealed to the general public to support the initiatives by switching on to LED bulbs. Replacing every single incandescent bulb with LED will not only reduce carbon foot print but it helps the country earn additional revenue of Rs. 142 million every year by selling the 62 million units of saved energy.
