Modi Government to provide cheaper ACs in collaboration with EESL



Modi Government to provide cheaper ACs in collaboration with EESL: Details, Features, Benefits

PM Narendra Modi has been re-elected as a Prime Minister for the second consecutive term on 30th May 2019.

And now, Modi Government is planning to give a cool gift to the people of India in the face of providing cheaper Air Conditioner (AC) on the lines of cheap LED bulbs across India.

During the period of hot summer’s heat, fans and coolers provide less relief. In such a situation, only AC can provide relief from the heat, but due to expensive prices, it becomes difficult for common people to buy them. Keeping this in mind, the Indian government is planning to provide AC in very cheap prices across the country.

Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) has planned to launch an e-commerce platform for the general public, where the customers will be able to purchase branded air conditioners at a lower cost than the market price.

EESL can launch this platform by July this year. Companies like LG, Panasonic, Blue Star, and Godrej have shown interest in selling cheap ACs on this platform.

Key Features

Guaranteed to install in 24 hours, with an exchange offer

35-40% reduction in the cost of electricity, as well as consumption AC prices provided by the government, can be reduced by 15 to 20 percent from the price of normal  

EESL will only sell ACs to those customers, whose name will be the electricity connection.

 EESL has also set a target of selling AC to 2 lakh people by next year. 

Customers will get a 1-year guarantee while AC will be given a 5-year guarantee on the compressor.
