Over 361.3 million LED bulbs have been disseminated across India, and 10.3 million smart LED streetlights have been mounted under the UJALA and LED Street Lighting National Program at an estimated energy savings of 6.97 billion kWh/year, according to the Ministry of Power (MoP).

According to the MoP, the initiative taken under UJALA has resulted in projected energy savings of 46.92 billion kWh/ year (avoiding the peak demand of 9,394 MW) and an assessed greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction of 38 million CO2 annually.

Escalating energy expenditure has been an issue in India, and one of the most disregarded reasons for this has been energy efficiency. To encourage energy efficiency, the government has launched programs like UJALA LED Street Lighting National Program which have facilitated the country in increasing its energy savings significantly. Launched in January 2015, the government’s zero grants UJALA and LED Street Lighting National Program marked its fifth anniversary lately.
