Mizoram signs up for Ujwal DISCOM Assurance Yojana

Mizoram has signed up for the Ujwal DISCOM Assurance Yojana (UDAY). It has become the 27th state to do so. According to government estimates, the State will derive an overall net benefit of approximately Rs 198 crore by opting to participate in UDAY, by way of cheaper funds, reduction in AT&C and transmission losses, interventions in energy efficiency during the period of turnaround. The reduction in AT&C losses and transmission losses to 15 per cent and 2.50 per cent respectively is likely to bring additional revenue of around Rs 166 crore during the period of turnaround. Demand Side interventions in UDAY such as usage of energy-efficient LED bulbs, agricultural pumps, fans & air-conditioners and efficient industrial equipment through PAT (Perform, Achieve, Trade) would help in reducing peak load, flatten load curve and thus help in reducing energy consumption in the State. The gain is expected to be around Rs 30 crore.
