Energy Efficient Retrofitting in Lingaraj Temple, Bhubaneshwar - Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation
  • Start year: 2008
  • Type: Technical/Infrastructure investment
  • Status: Completed

Under the Local Renewables Project, energy efficient lighting fixtures were fitted in the Lingaraj Temple of Bhubaneshwar in place of ordinary lighting system. All the 40 W ordinary tube lights were retrofitted into energy efficient lighting of 28 W. This initiative also addresses the implementation of the city's local energy policy. As a result of retofitting of lighting fixtures in Lord Lingaraj temple there has been a reduction of 36.25% of total electricity load and a total saving of 9.43 tonnes of eCO2 in ten months' time period . The project has saved apprx. INR 89,375.00 electric bill which implies that the project cost has already been recovered. In addition, it has saved 9.43 tonnnes of eCO2 which otherwise would have been released into the atmosphere. This pilot project at the Lingraj temple has greatly popularise the energy efficient technologies at the local level and the citizens of Bhubaneswar city have adopted the energy efficient lighting systems for their day to day requirements in the residential, commercial & institutional, industrial and municipal sector.
