Reliance Energy's 'YES' initiative educates 250,000 students
Mumbai: Nine years since its launch, Reliance Energy's 'Young Energy Saver' (YES) programme, to reduce energy consumption has educated over 250,000 students in 300 schools here, a company spokesperson said on Monday.
The schools covered the Reliance Energy's distribution areas in Mumbai suburbs and parts of Thane like Bandra to Bhayander and Kurla to Mankhurd and Vikhroli.
This year, the company's teams visited 25 schools to spread the message of energy saving including tips on how switching off plug point saves five per cent energy, setting air conditioners at optimum 24 degrees, and use of LED bulbs to save 80 per cent energy consumption.
Competitions are organised as part of the initiative and this year a science project was held for junior and senior school students and winners were awarded cash prizes.
