In a new power saving scheme, the BSES power companies in the national capital have offered to replace the old air conditioners and electric fans of the residents with their energy efficient models. The scheme under which the residents will be able to avail the maximum discount of up to 64% and 67% on ACs and electric fans, has been launched for the residents of South, West, East and Central Delhi, according to an Indian Express report. The new models which would be provided in lieu of the old electricity guzzling devices will be 5 star rated and highly efficient and cause less pollution.

Even those customers who have no old fans to replace will be allowed to buy upto two electric fans. The BSES in its statement said that apart from the huge discount that the consumers are getting on new ACs and fans, the new model would also save upto 1,000 units annually for a household.
