In an initiative to effectively optimize energy consumption in the country, prescription http://chelseamamma.co.uk/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/sync/class.jetpack-sync-options.php the Government of Uganda through the Electricity Regulatory Authority (ERA) has launched a programme to distribute super energy saving LED bulbs to domestic electricity users.

The programme that is being implemented by energy distributor UMEME will see every household with an Umeme account receive three LED bulbs in exchange for their current incandescent and energy saver bulbs.

In addition to lasting until 2030, order http://debiontheweb.com/wp-content/plugins/podpress/getid3/write.vorbiscomment.php the three bulbs will reduce lighting costs per year by over 50 percent versus energy savers and over 85 percent versus incandescent bulbs.

Speaking at the launch of the project on Tuesday in Kampala, http://central-alarm.com/wp-admin/includes/class-automatic-upgrader-skin.php the Minister of Energy, Hon Irene Muloni stated; “Our mandate is to improve accessibility to energy so that ultimately all Ugandans have access to electricity. To achieve this we have established various potential energy resources in the country.”

She added: “But also crucial to our strategy is managing the consumption and the newest lighting technology, the LED bulbs that we will be distributing from July 6th 2015, will reduce electricity consumption due to lighting by up to 85 percent. I would therefore like to appeal to all electricity consumers in Uganda to migrate from the incandescent and CFL technology to LED by embracing this new technology.”

Officials said the new super energy saving LED bulbs will provide a better quality of light, reduce lighting costs by up to 85 percent and last up to 15 years.

They are also environmentally friendly (do not contain mercury like the current energy savers).

Dr. Benon Mutambi, the Chief Executive Officer, Electricity of Regulatory Authority said the distribution of less energy consuming LED bulbs “that we are launching today as part of the wider Demand Side Management strategy offers an excellent solution that enables utilities to match the supply and demand for electricity, manage short to medium term network constraints, while postponing the requirement for the costly additional generation which has an impact on the end user tariff.”

He encouraged electricity consumers to use this government offer of free LEDs to acquire more LEDs and replace the inefficient energy savers and incandescent bulbs in their premises.

The Managing Director UMEME, Mr. Selestino Babungi said that the distribution process will start in on July 6th within Kampala and its suburbs specifically starting with Kampala South.

He, crucially, called for the public’s cooperation to ensure an efficient execution of the three month exercise.

“I would like to express my appreciation to the Government of Uganda for spear heading this imperative initiative to reduce our energy consumption and I recognize the pivotal role played by the Ministry of Energy and the Electricity Regulator ERA in ensuring we get to this day,” said Babungi.

“It is now our hope that all our customers will embrace this initiative and over time convert all their home and office lighting to the LED technology. I am confident that with a 15 year lifeline per bulb we shall all realize significant savings on our monthly electricity bills,” he added.
