Chandigarh, Sep 29 (UNI) The Haryana Department of Renewable Energy has prepared an energy conservation action plan under which energy audit of large government buildings would be conducted to optimise the level of energy consumption.
Deputy Chief Minister Chander Mohan said that the Haryana Renewable Energy Development Agency (HAREDA) had invited bids from the energy service companies empaneled by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) to carry out energy audit of 20 large Government buildings by October 15.
He said the energy audit of these large government buildings would be conducted this year with financial assistance of BEE.
The broad objective of energy audit of these buildings was to measure the present energy consumption, monitor and analyse use of energy and suggest ways to optimise power consumption.
Energy audit also aimed at minimising energy cost. The owners of buildings would have to implement the energy efficient measures recommended by the energy auditor out of their own resources, he added.
He said energy audit of ten government buildings including Haryana Raj Bhawan had been completed and recommendations for use of CFLs and T-5, 28 watt tube lights made by the energy audit company had also been implemented to conserve energy.
