Chandigarh: The Haryana government has made it mandatory to conduct energy audit for the consumers consuming 100 KW to 1,000 KW of the connected load.
The government buildings having an electricity load of more than 100 KW and getting their energy audit done will be given a 100 per cent grant from the department as their energy audit will be done free of cost.
An official spokesperson said on Thursday that a campaign has been launched by the Department of New and Renewable Energy to conduct an energy audit for different categories of consumers.
By getting the energy audit the department gets information about what measures they have to take so as to save maximum electricity.
The energy audit also gives information about where the electricity is being used more than required.
The spokesman said for any consumer other than government buildings having a connected power load of more than 100 KW and they want to get energy audit of their building, the government will give a grant of 50 per cent and a maximum up to Rs 50,000.
All those building consumers whose connected load is 100 KW to 1000 KW are asked to contact the Programme Officer with the Renewable Energy Department in the Additional Deputy Commissioner’s offices at the district level so that the energy audit of their buildings can be done.
