Energy saving no less important than generation

Mr. Shukla’s message on energy conservation day December 14

Bhopal, December 14, 2015 (Ataullah Faizan):   Energy Minister Mr. Rajendra Shukla has said that conservation and augmentation of energy is very vital for accelerating the pace of development. In his message on the eve of Energy Conservation Day, Mr. Shukla said that conserving energy is no less important than its generation. Motivating people to conserve energy is like generating power. Mr. Shukla said that due to increase in population, industrial development and modernisation of farming methods, there has been constant rise in the demand for energy. The biggest need of the present time is power conservation. With the help of energy conservation, the gap between demand and supply of power can be bridged to a great extent. He said that demand for energy is much more than its availability in the state.

Therefore, it has become the bounden duty of all of us to use power saving and inspire others also to do so. The Energy Minister has appealed to the people not to misuse power and use the same as per the sanctioned capacity. The Energy Minister has also made a call to the officers and employees of Power Distribution Companies to realise their responsibilities toward energy conservation. He said that these officers and employees should themselves remain cautious in using power but should also keep motivating people to undertake energy conservation.
