Power Minister R K Singh today said that the rate of growth of electricity demand in this quarter is 10.5 per cent. He said, the demand will grow further as one lakh consumers are being added every day who have no electricity.
Mr Singh said this while inaugurating the three-day International symposium to promote innovation and research in energy efficiency, INSPIRE-2018 in New Delhi.
He said, government is also focussing on energy saving and for this the government is providing energy efficient bulbs. He said, more than 120 crore LED bulbs have been distributed which resulted in saving of around 8,500-megawatt energy per year.
