Ahmedabad: Recognising the need to curb wastage of energy, Tata Power, India’s largest integrated power utility, took the lead and started a unique initiative of energy conservation through schoolchildren, called Tata Power Club Enerji. Today, through this novel initiative, over 4.3 million citizens have been sensitised across the country and more 5.8 million units of electricity have been saved till date.
In 2011-12, Tata Power Club Enerji sensitised over 14,800 children across 15 schools in Ahmedabad. These children have further reached out to more than 1,09,000 people, thereby taking the total sensitisation figure to over 1,23,876 citizens. These citizens have saved more than 2,47,647 units of electricity in the year. The club has 1,554 Energy Champions, more than 2,154 Energy Ambassadors and 49 mini Tata Power Club Enerjis across the city this year. The energy saving programme has also been taken up as project work in various city schools.
The club has been active in Ahmedabad for over three years and has sensitised more than 3,09,829 citizens who have saved 6,66,817 units of energy till date. The club has 3,695 Energy Champions and 7,561 Energy Ambassadors in Ahmedabad till date.
Speaking on the occasion, Anil Sardana, managing director, Tata Power, said, “We are proud of the achievement of these young children and appreciate the support given to them by their teachers and principals. These students of Ahmedabad continue to spearhead the movement of energy conservation and have achieved a great milestone, and we hope they continue the good work in the years to come!”Tata Power Club Enerji is active in schools in ten prominent cities of India viz Mumbai, New Delhi, Ahmedabad, Pune, Jamshedpur, Lonavla, Belgaum, Haldia, Bengaluru and Kolkata.
