Surat I-T dept to save over 1L units of electricity

According to reports, income-tax department has set a target for conserving around 1 lakh units of electricity at its headquarters and other offices in the city during the ‘Energy Conservation Week’ starting Saturday.

The energy conservation week is being observed for the second consecutive year. Last year, the department had saved around 1.13 lakh units worth Rs 6.8 lakh.

A series of events have been organized during the week, including a seminar on strategies to improve energy efficiency in buildings, presentation on saving power in daily life, distribution of pamphlets and stickers on energy conservation, screening of documentary on saving energy, drawing and painting competition for kids on energy conservation, interactive session for I-T officers, daily wagers, security personnel on energy saving tips etc.

A special seminar on energy conservation will be held on Monday under Kartikeya Sarabhai, eminent environmentalist from Ahmedabad.

Joint commissioner of I-T D V Singh said, “Surat’s I-T department is the first in the country to take up the campaign on energy conservation. Our main concentration is on saving electricity in the Aaykar Bhavan and involving every employee and ground staff in the campaign.”

He said the energy conservation campaign will continue throughout the year and it is expected to yield positive results in terms of increased awareness among the I-T community towards energy conservation. This time around, other state government entities will also be covered under the energy conservation week.

“Through the campaign, we intend to bring down our annual electricity spending by almost 15 to 17 per cent,” he added.
