Every year, Reliance Energy runs energy efficiency and energy conservation programs for customers with an objective to create awareness in the society on the importance of energy conservation and smart usage of energy.
The programs aim at facilitating adoption of energy efficient technology in order to reduce customer demand and power purchase cost, while also reducing Green House Gas (GHG) emissions which protects the environment.
Since energy efficient appliances cost more, Reliance Energy bridges the price gap by offering rebate to help its customers purchase energy efficient appliances and promote energy efficiency. The rebate offered on the purchase of energy efficient appliances is as per regulatory approvals.
Under ‘Change for Mumbai’ initiative, Reliance Energy has so far distributed 25,000 ceiling fans, 6,500 refrigerators and 3,000 air-conditioners with 5 star energy efficiency rating at subsidized cost to its residential and commercial customers resulting in energy savings of 19 million kwh.
Residential customers can avail the offer by registering for this program either by calling a toll free number 1800 200 3030 or filling up the Registration Form on the website of Reliance Energy www.relianceenergy.in.
