Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) launched its Super-Efficient Air Conditioning Programme for residential and institutional consumers on Friday.

EESL is a joint venture of four Public Sector Enterprises under the administrative control of Ministry of Power. The programme was launched in the localities in the capital serviced by BSES.

An EESL statement said that EESL and BSES will implement a 12-month pilot of the programme. Under the agreement, BRPL would assist in aggregating demand and providing local marketing and outreach support to promote energy efficient technologies in the areas it currently services. This covers around 25 lakh residential and institutional consumers in South and West Delhi.

EESL will conduct all activities related to source, supply, complaint management and redressal, and fulfilment of warranty obligations for the products, the statement said.

With the Super-Efficient Air Conditioning programme, EESL aims to distribute air conditioners that are 40 per cent more efficient than, but priced comparably with, the 3-star ACs currently available in the market.

EESL will mobilise a capital of ₹ 150 crore for the programme while redeeming its investment through upfront payments for the super-efficient ACs from customers.

“Based on its past experiences with bulk procurement for other technologies and programmes, EESL expects to discover prices that are 20-30 per cent less than the retail costs of similar technologies currently available in the market… The Super-Efficient AC programme will also help to reduce the peak power demand in South and West Delhi by 22MW,” the statement said.
