Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal, said that the State Government has prepared a new scheme for the conservation of electricity under which energy efficient pumps sets of 5 star rating would be installed in the State.
Mr Manohar Lal was giving his reply on the concluding day of Monsoon Session of Vidhan Sabha here today. He said that electricity connections have been released to all those consumers who have applied under the Tatkal Scheme except nine due to technical reasons.
He said that the 5 star rating pump sets would be of latest technology and would help saving electricity upto 30 per cent. The Power Department would purchase these pump sets from a reputed company through tendering process. He said farmers would be required to pay nominal amount for these pump sets while the balance amount would be paid by the State Government. A warranty of five years would also be provided to the farmers for the pump sets, he added. He said that after the implementation of the scheme in the first phase, old meters would also be replaced.
