To help consumers beat the heat while promoting energy conservation, Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited (Tata Power-DDL) has re-launched its popular ‘5 Star AC scheme’ for its customers in North Delhi.
A senior Tata Power-DDL official said that under the scheme, consumers can exchange their non-star ACs for 1.5 Ton BEE 5 star rated Window or Inverter Split ACs and avail a discount of up to 45 percent on MRP for various models of ACs from Voltas. The scheme is open for all segments of consumers.
Besides providing discount on the market price, the scheme would also help consumers save up on their electricity bills annually depending upon their usage, thereby offering them twin advantages, he said.
Tata Power-DDL consumers can avail the scheme against their CA numbers mentioned in the electricity bills. There is no cap on the number of ACs that can be purchased under this scheme.
The scheme has been targeted at households as the domestic sector accounts for almost 50 percent of energy consumption in Delhi and ACs power consumption is a key component of the same. It is estimated that five star rated ACs can help reduce electricity consumption sharply. In fact, according to estimates, almost around 50 percent of Delhi’s power demand in summers is because of the cooling load involving air conditioners, coolers and fans.
Commenting on the launch of the scheme, Sanjay Banga, CEO, Tata Power-DDL said, “Tata Power-DDL not only believes in supplying non-stop power but also in contributing towards energy conservation for the environmental good by promoting energy-efficient appliances.
With this in mind we are offering discounts to our consumers on efficient 5 Star Rated ACs.
This will help them in conserving power and reducing their electricity bills. I urge our consumers to make the most of this scheme”.
The official said that the buyback price of old ACs will be Rs 2500. Installation charges will be Rs. 200 for window ACs and Rs. 500 for split AC. All these models will have warranty of five years. The scheme is valid till 31st December 2019.―The Pioneer
