energy efficient in temples 19072016 1

Andhra Pradesh is inching towards becoming the number one State in energy efficiency. CBN’s Government has launched the Energy-Efficient Endowments Project (EEEP) in seven major temples in a bid to conserve a massive 60 lakh units of power and 200 tons of LPG fuel per annum.

As part of the initiative, the government has initially selected the famous temples at Srisailam, Vijayawada (Kanakadurga temple), Srikalahasti, Kanipakam, Dwaraka Tirumala, Simhachalam and Annavaram for taking up energy efficiency measures. The State Energy Conservation Mission has already conducted a detailed study of energy consumption pattern and feasibility for measures like replacing all types of bulbs and fans with LED bulbs and energy-efficient fans, installing solar powered LED street lights and replacing the electrical geysers with solar water heaters.
