Efficient Lighting


Lighting contributes to a considerable share in the commercial sector which is about 20%. It is necessary to implement design and technology features for the efficiency improvement in lighting. The major barrier faced by the institutions is the cost of implementation. Through the PTF on EDSM, it is expected to finance viable projects in commercial and industrial sectors. It has been estimated that 549.1 GWh of electricity can be saved by implementing this scheme by 2020. The cost of implementation is LKR 9,610 million.
