REPLACEMENT OF INCANDESCENT BULBS


Label for Room Air Conditioners

The Government of Ghana in its effort to conserve and improve energy efficiency is distributing six million pieces of compact fluorescent lamps to replace an equivalent number of incandescent bulbs throughout Ghana, starting with the Burma Camp. So far 68,000 pieces of Compact Fluorescent Lamps of various wattages have been deposited at the Burma Camp to initiate the replacements at the Military and Paramilitary establishments. This forms part of the Government?s measures to address the current electricity supply shortfall and its attendant power rationing.

The project seeks to replace existing 5 million pieces of incandescent bulbs of various wattages from 40W to 100W that consume a total of about 581GWH of electricity per annum with 6million pieces of Compact Fluorescent lamps of various wattages 9W -20W that will consume a total of about 151.475GWH of electricity annually.

This will save approximately124.2MW in peak demand (207MW peak demand at a load factor of 60%), 429,525MWH of electricity annually and save about 150,000tCO2 per annum.The project is being coordinated by the Energy Foundation and the Energy Commission.
