Saina, Gopichand to back energy conservation - Sakshi Post


Badminton ace Saina Nehwal and her 'guru' Pullela Gopichand will be promoting the energy conservation and energy efficiency (EC and EE) initiatives of the power-starved Andhra Pradesh government.

Officials from the State Energy Conservation Mission met the duo here today and invited them to be a part of EC and EE campaign.
 Both Saina and Gopichand readily agreed....We will soon chalk out a communication strategy and spread our activities across the state, State Energy Conservation Mission chief executive A Chandrasekhar Reddy said in a press release.
 Industry bodies such as CII, FICCI, FAPCCI, and central PSUs such as Central Institute for Rural Electrification and Rural Electrification Corporation have already supported the EC and EE measures.
 The state has a total installed power capacity of 16,500 MW but it was able to generate only about 10,000 MW due to severe shortage of coal and natural gas, Chandrasekhar said.
 The state targets to save at least 15,000 million units of power per annum through EC and EE measures.
