MoP launches schemes to promote the use of efficient pumps and fans

The MoP has launched two new schemes – the National Energy Efficient Agriculture Pumps Programme (NEEAPP) and the National Energy Efficient Fan Programme (NEEFP). These schemes will be implemented by Energy Efficiency Services Limited. Under the NEEAPP, farmers can replace their inefficient pumps free of cost with new star-rated energy-efficient agricultural pump sets. Meanwhile under the NEEFP, Bureau of Energy Efficiency star-rated fans will be distributed, and this will reduce electricity bills of consumers by Rs 700-Rs 730 per year.
