In a move towards energy conservation, Andhra Pradesh State Government has decided to replace one lakh ceiling fans with energy efficient ones.
Energy Advisor to the government K. Ranganathan said that it will result in saving of 15 million power per year. He said that the government gives two fans to each domestic consumer, five fans for commercial purpose and ten for educational purposes. He said that the cost of normal fan would be around Rs.1,600 or so while the energy efficient fans would cost Rs.955 and another Rs.155 as installation charges. The amount would be recovered in 24 monthly instalments, he said.
