05 Jun 2017 -Mumbai Tata Power launches Super-Efficient BLDC Ceiling Fan program for the consumers in Mumbai on World Environment Day

Tata Power, India's largest integrated power company, has always been at the forefront of propagating energy conservation and efficiency in the country. In continuation of these efforts and on the occasion of World Environment Day, Tata Power as part of its Demand Side Management (DSM) initiatives, has launched super-efficient ceiling fan program for its residential consumers in Mumbai.

The program has been rolled out by Tata Power in partnership with "Atomberg Technologies", an award-winning start-up launched by the alumni of IIT-Mumbai.

The objective of the program is to encourage the residential consumers to adopt highly energy efficient ceiling fan solutions, thereby saving electricity. The ceiling fans named ‘Gorilla' are based on the Brushless DC (BLDC) technology that are more energy efficient than five-star ceiling fans available in the market, consuming just 28 Watts at the highest speed. These fans come with a smart remote control, which has speed control, sleep and timer mode. Under this program, each residential consumer is eligible to procure 4 ceiling fans at a price of Rs. 1750 each, against a market price of Rs. 3500/- each.

Commenting on the initiative, Mr. Ashok Sethi, COO and Executive Director, Tata Power, said, "Energy management and conservation are more important today than ever before and innovative technologies like the BLDC technology can be a game changer for it. Ceiling fans are one of the most important but often underrated appliances when we think of energy efficiency in homes. This program is in continuation of our efforts to promote end-use energy efficiency by offering the cutting-edge solutions at a highly discounted rate. Such initiatives reiterate our commitment towards energy efficiency and demand side management, both of which are vital to Tata Power's commitment to ‘Sustainability'.”

The products will be home delivered to the consumers who register for the program. The consumers would also get an exclusive three-year warranty on these Ceiling Fans. To avail to the scheme, consumers can register themselves online at "BE GREEN" on the Tata Power website or at 24X7 call center.

Tata Power's DSM Programs are gaining wide spread momentum, more so due to its tremendous potential to save energy costs to the consumer. In last few years, Tata Power has launched diverse DSM programs which include appliance exchange, load shift and energy audits. Some innovative programs like "Demand Response", a smart grid solution and "Thermal storage", a load shift solution were acknowledged at national level. Tata Power is one of the earliest utilities in India to have embraced DSM programs in a wide spread manner.
