State Govt takes up project to conserve power
In order to stop wastage of electricity during the monsoon season, the State Government has requested the people of the State as well as government offices to switch off power supply for at least half-an-hour every week.
This is part of a campaign started by the State Government to generate awareness on power conservation, named ‘Save Energy, Save Earth and Environment’.
This was decided at a meeting on June 25 at Nabanna, presided by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, where departments including Power, Panchayats and Water Resources took part. The meeting stressed the need for conserving energy and preventing wastage of power.
The chief minister urged the Power Department to ensure uninterrupted power generation, distribution and transmission in the ongoing summer season, and also to ensure the irrigation sector is not affected due to power shortage.
