Panaji: July 15, 2016 … The Chief Minister, Shri Laxmikant Parsekar has said that Government intends to make the State power sufficient to cater to the need of industrial units. The Government has already approved the proposals for 98 new industry units and the energy saved out of the use of LED bulbs could be used for the said purpose, he said.

  Shri Parsekar was speaking as the Chief Guest at the LED Bulb distribution function under Jyotirmay Goa Scheme organized at Neura Tiswadi, yesterday.

 Shri Parsekar further said that Goa has to rely on neighbouring states for its power requirements as it does not produce energy and therefore urged the people to save power. The technology used in LED bulb reduces the consumption of energy. The use of LED bulb will curtail the bill by half of the amount of their usual bills, he added.

 Enlisting various welfare schemes implemented by the Government for the welfare of the common man in the state, he advised the people to use LED bulbs and save power.

MLA, Shri Vishnu Surya Wagh; Sarpanch Village Panchayat Neura, Shri Vinod Kamat; Sarpanch Village Panchayat, Azzossim Mandur, Smt. Asha Madkaikar; Dy. Sarpanch, Shri Premnath, Ward Member Francisco Po, and staff of Electricity Department were among those present for the function.

 Earlier, Shri Parsekar also distributed LED bulbs at Khandepar in Ponda Taluka and Porvorim in Bardez Taluka.
