Works initiated by SDA Assam on matters relating to Energy Conservation:

A list of industrial consumers having connected load of more than 1000KW has been collected. Since as per the latest norms, the categorization of Designated consumers is made on the basis of energy consumption in terms of MTOE, the detailed list will be ready after the respective consultants submit their report

The State PWD has informed that most of the street lights in the Guwahati City have been fitted with automatic switching devices to conserve energy

Most of the existing large buildings have been informed to adopt energy efficiency measures by using energy efficiency lamps and other appliances

The Electricity distribution companies have been requested to print energy saving tips on the reverse side of monthly energy bills for benefit of electricity users
Cinema halls and multiplex halls were requested to display energy conservation messages using slide shows at intervals. Some of them have already started the display and the rest are also expected to follow very soon
Some energy auditors have started energy audit in Tea sectors and buildings. Though the matter is in a primitive stage at the moment, it is expected to gain momentum after the achievement of positive results by the energy users
